Deep Green Development & District Energy System Videos

Working with Sustainable Living Ottawa East, the objective was to produce media materials (videos or infographics) to inform and engage residents, the developers and other influencers about the potential for advanced sustainability approaches to a major (12 ha) development in Old Ottawa East.


Two infographic-style videos and one interview video were produced. The first is an overview of the rationale and potential for a district energy system in the development, and the second is an introduction to the community context of deep green development. The videos were important both as communications tools, and as a means of demonstrating SLOE’s level of commitment and capacity in regards to the project.
