Efficiency for All

Efficiency for All

A new report by Efficiency Canada shows how federal investment in existing low-income energy efficiency programs can help achieve net-zero emissions and reduce energy poverty.

Lowering costs and enhancing equity to achieve net-zero emissions through energy efficiency

To achieve net-zero emission goals, this budget must strategically dedicate resources to prepare for a significant scale-up in energy efficiency. Canada lags other nations in the efficient use of energy resources. A recent International Energy Agency analysis showed that Canada has the highest energy intensity measured by total final consumption per unit of GDP amongst all member countries. However, this suggests there is significant potential to cut energy costs, improve productivity, and reduce emissions.

Workforce Requirements for Low-carbon Buildings

Workforce Requirements for Low-carbon Buildings

The building sector workforce, as presently composed, is not adequately equipped to
deliver the scale and scope of green building construction and retrofitting that is required to meet Canada’s greenhouse gas reduction targets.

Together with the Canada Green Building Council, we developed a simple “placemat” to describe the problem and propose some recommendations.

Building the Canada we want in 2050: Efficiency Canada’s perspectives on the National Infrastructure Assessment

We welcome the opportunity to provide our thoughts and perspectives on the priorities laid out in Building the Canada We Want in 2050 Engagement Paper on the National Infrastructure Assessment. The Canada we want in 2050, with more inclusive and livable communities that offer affordable housing for all Canadians, can be achieved via wide-scale retrofits and net-zero new builds constructed with low and zero carbon building materials.
