A brief overview of energy and air management
- A Honeywell EBI operational control system measures the temperature in real time and adjusts energy needs according to traffic and customer needs (8,339 kW heating plant and 1,500-ton cooling plant).
- The Centre’s lighting is energy efficient, and the fixtures are mercury-free (LED bulbs consume 75% less energy).
- Better air quality is provided by more than 120 ventilation units equipped with high-efficiency filters and carrying out between 10 to 12 air changes per hour in the meeting rooms (342,844 L/s of outside air).
- To properly handle these multiple daily operations, the Convention Centre’s electromechanical systems have more than 9,992 checkpoints.
Connected Water Fountains
At the Québec City Convention Centre, all our meeting rooms have free access to quality filtered water. Plastic containers of bottled water were banned from our spaces a long time ago! Instead, we’ve installed water fountains connected directly to Québec City’s water supply network, equipped with high-performance filters to guarantee high-quality drinking water.
This system also enables us to have contactless water fountains in public areas, ideal for refilling reusable water bottles and reducing the use of single-use plastics!
In june 2023, the Québec City Convention Centre welcomes Québec RE3, an international conference on ecosystem restoration.
Québec City Convention Centre won the Platinum category of the GHG Target Achievement Award, a significant distinction.
Eco-friendly events are a priority and our turnkey program for the organization of eco-friendly events was launched 15 years ago.
