A new CBECS report, Trends in Lighting in Commercial Buildings , provides detailed information on lighting from the 2012 CBECS and reviews trends in commercial lighting going back to the 1995 CBECS. It compares the amount of commercial buildings floorspace lit by standard fluorescent, compact fluorescent, incandescent, high-intensity discharge, and halogen lighting across different building activities from 2003 to 2012. The report also provides information on lighting use by building size and on the use of lighting controls and control strategies.

Estimates of water consumption in large (greater than 200,000 square feet) commercial buildings from the 2012 CBECS are now available in this report: Water Consumption in Large Buildings Summary. Included in the report are annual water consumption estimates (Table W1) and daily estimates (Table WD1). Additionally, a public use microdata file is available for users to perform custom analysis. For information on how the data were collected, see How was water usage information collected for commercial buildings?

National-level estimates for 53 building activity subcategories are now available in five new tables. The CBECS Detailed Tables provide 16 categories for principal building activity, but the CBECS questionnaire actually collects around 100 different building activities. Not all of the subcategories have large enough sample counts to provide statistically significant estimates, but there are 53 subcategories that were already provided in the public use microdata files and are now pretabulated. For characteristics such as building counts, building size, operating hours, and age, see Tables PBA1 and PBA2 , which are found in the section of the building characteristics tables . For energy consumption estimates, see tables PBA3 , Red Chain Strap Cross Body Bag Poppy red Armani 4sJX8a
, and PBA5 , found in the major fuels, electricity, and natural gas sections, respectively, of the consumption and expenditures tables . For further information on the types of buildings included in each activity subcategory, see 2012 CBECS Building Activity Subcategory Examples and Definitions .

Additionally, minor revisions have been made to Detailed Tables B1, B2, and C4. In B1, the calculation of the column was modified to exclude buildings with zero workers; in Table B2, the calculation of the median operating hours per week column was modified to include buildings that were never open; and in Table C4, the calculation of the building-level intensity percentiles were modified to include buildings that do not use any energy.

Other Sectors:

Dense urban human settlement – the cities of the world and the buildings and infrastructure that comprise them – account for a significant percentage of human energy use, mostly for heating and cooling; ergo, they are a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. The rapid urbanization of humanity ushered in inefficient design of buildings and infrastructure, and Project Drawdown identified, measured, mapped and modeled several solutions that address the operating inefficiencies of dwelling in and using buildings, and of living in cities.

For Buildings, 10 solutions were identified (8 of which were modeled) as listed here:

Building automation – through controls and sensors, automation systems turn appliances and other energy uses on and off according to need and use, increasing utilization and reducing space heating and cooling waste.

Green roofs (cool roofs and green roofs) – cool roofs reflect solar radiation and reduce air temperature, which leads to reduction in cooling loads. Green roofs have a similar effect as well as reducing heating loads in regions of high heat demand. Collectively, green roofs mitigate carbon emissions by reducing fossil fuel use in heating and cooling.

Heat pumps – high efficiency heat pump systems are radically more efficient than conventional HVAC systems. The use of heat pumps reduces building heating and cooling loads.

Insulation – insulating building envelopes reduces space heating and cooling loads, which in turn mitigates carbon emissions.

LED lighting (commercial) – replacing conventional lighting solutions (bulbs, ballasts and systems) with more efficient commercial light-emitting diodes.

Exercising outdoors on a hot day? Drink lots of water—don’t wait until you’re thirsty!

Summers in Quebec are short but intense. Whether you’re physically active or not, when a heat wave strikes, you’re sure to sweat! Even though perspiring is important to our health, its effects aren’t always welcome. Here are some tips on how to avoid excessive sweating.

Perspiration 101

Let’s start by looking at why we sweat. Perspiration is a natural phenomenon that helps our body regulate its temperature by evacuating potentially harmful surplus heat.

It’s a myth that perspiration has an odour: sweat secreted by sebaceous glands is made up primarily of water—and also minerals, lactate and urea. So where does the unpleasant odour come from? Bacteria living in our body that feed on sweat. The more you sweat, the more they proliferate! Particularly under the arms and in the genital area where our apocrine glands produce good fat for bacteria.

Deodorant

Don’t disregard deodorant. The quality varies among brands, but the right products can be effective. They contain antibacterial ingredients that eliminate the bacteria-causing odours. So which are the best deodorants?

Share

Two popular products are often suggested in-store: ROC Keops deodorant and Vichy Stress Resist Anti-perspirant roll-on. — The Vichy product offers 72-hour protection and is particularly effective on women who perspire excessively. Not convinced? Ask one of our cosmeticians for advice . They’ll be happy to help you chose the product that’s right for you.

Clothing

Physically active? Be aware that synthetic fibres (e.g. nylon, polyester) trap sweat and contribute to odour build-up. To avoid smelling unpleasantly when doing exercise, wear good old cotton shirts or other natural fabrics that are breathable and wick away moisture.

Next, opt for loose clothing. Close-fitting fabrics that stick to your skin prevent it from breathing. More air means less moisture and fewer odour-causing bacteria.

Don’t forget your precious feet! The soles are rich in sebaceous glands, and since shoes mould your feet, there’s about as much air circulation in your shoe as in a sauna. Add to that hot weather and intensive exercise and you have the best conditions for the build-up of unpleasant odours.

The golden rule is to air out your shoes after exercising and wash your socks after each use. If you sweat easily, use a deodorant or antiperspirant specially designed for feet.

Hygiene

Don’t skimp on showers! It’s hot, you’re keeping active and perspiring abundantly—the sun isn’t going to give you a fresh clean scent! And if that means having a quick shower several times a day, so be it!
