The Latest Wild Weather Trends from ICLR at WindEEE Facility | Incredible data & insights from the experts in the lab and on the ground 

Have you ever driven along Veterans Memorial Parkway in London and wondered what that building that seems to be from outer space is all about?! That is the WindEEE dome, part of the Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment Research Facility (WindEEE RF). The Insurance Institute has secured a rare and unique opportunity for you to tour the dome for an interactive event that will increase your knowledge of severe weather trends and the implications for the insurance industry, homeowners, and others!

One of the many practical applications of WindEEE is that it can help us understand more about how we build homes and community-level vulnerabilities, so we can draft better building codes, and better prepare the insurance industry and society for the present and the future. With the ever-worsening trend in weather events, as well as the the potential increases for personal and commercial loss exposures, the need for up-to-date information is crucial.

Here is an overview of the agenda:
Impactful research being conducted at WindEEE
- Lessons learned from the Northern Tornadoes Project
- Impacts of the Northern Hail Projects
- Insights & expertise from the University of Western Ontario expert faculty
- Increase high wind safety for Canadian homes & implications for new home construction
And a guided tour of the WindEEE dome facility

Participants will gain the latest knowledge and trends on the topic, as well as a first-hand, interactive look at how WindEEE research experiments are tried and tested in the lab. Don’t miss it!

- Glenn McGillivray, Managing Director, Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction
