Join the CaGBC Atlantic Chapter for a virtual interactive session on energy benchmarking.
The Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change highlights the importance of energy efficient and low-carbon buildings and communities as essential to building a low-carbon, clean-growth economy. Energy efficiency reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, contributes to lowering energy bills, stimulates innovation, and generates shareholder value and good paying jobs.
Building energy benchmarking, disclosure, and labelling (BDL) programs are identified as a key market transformation strategy in the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate (PCF) and offer numerous potential benefits for provinces, and Canada as a whole. In anticipation of future federal regulatory requirements various government BDL programs have been successfully implemented across Canada in recent years. These programs have offered useful examples for the development of a Nova Scotian pilot.
This virtual stakeholder engagement event will be the official “kick-off” of the NS Voluntary Energy Benchmarking Pilot. Participants will be introduced to the pilot project and resources available to them. We will also provide context of other benchmarking programs in Canada and other jurisdictions.
Building Owners, Facilities Managers, Professional Services, Policy Experts and interested CaGBC Members are encouraged to participate.
