Joe Bilé, P.Eng., MBA
Manager, Business Development, Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited
In 2018, BOMA Toronto supported by Toronto Hydro launched “Race2Reduce”(R2R), a high-profile competition promoting electrical efficiency and conservation amongst peer groups of commercial real estate buildings. The concept driver behind the joint initiative, Joe was also responsible for vetting savings used to determine results. Importantly, R2R only counts measured savings falling under IESO’s Conservation First Framework and consistent with the measurement protocols administered under the program. By March 2018, less than a year after its launch, R2R was already a resounding success, boasting over 500 building registrations representing a penetration of over 95% in the Toronto core, who combined to produce a 4% reduction against their electricity baseline.
