Efficiency Canada’s Codes4Climate: A Building Code Advocates Toolkit

The places we live, work, play, and gather are a critical piece of Canada’s transition to a net zero economy. This points to a new role for building energy codes that is exemplified in Canada’s proposed 2020 national model codes.
To help accelerate the adoption of these advanced building energy codes, Efficiency Canada has developed Codes4Climate: A Building Code Advocacy Toolkit for those interested in reducing energy use and emissions in the buildings sector including municipalities, energy code advocates, policymakers, and builders.

Reframing the Policy Discussion on Geothermal Heat Pump Systems: New Considerations

Reframing the Policy Discussion on Geothermal Heat Pump Systems: New Considerations

A recent study by Dunsky Energy Consulting highlights the unique benefits of ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems to the long-term development and management of a sustainable electricity grid. The study shows that the societal benefits go well beyond the known benefits of GSHPs to reducing energy use and carbon emissions. The implications for system planning are substantial and warrant closer consideration by policy-makers. This session will summarize the study’s findings and will include some discussion of key policy tools that can aid in making those benefits a reality, based on a survey of other jurisdictions.
