Improved energy benchmarks
for LEED Canada for Homes to take effect August 1, 2012
Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) has completed a national
consultation on the energy prerequisite in LEED Canada for Homes.
Introduced in early March 2009, LEED Canada for Homes is a national
third-party certification system for energy efficient, healthy,
green homes with over 1800 homes registered, and 350 certified to
In an effort to build upon this
success, the CaGBC has responded to the suggestions of LEED Canada
for Homes builders and developers by consulting with the industry to
determine whether or not it should be raising the minimum energy
efficiency threshold for participation in the program.
As a result of the survey that was
conducted in winter 2012, the CaGBC has announced that the new
minimum for energy performance in the LEED Canada for Homes rating
system will be EnerGuide 80 for all homes that register after August
1, 2012. In keeping with this, the Prescriptive and HERS (Home
Energy Rating System) paths will also be adjusted: a HERS score of
72 will be required, or if using the prescriptive path a minimum of
8 points will need to be achieved from EAc2, EAc3, EAc4, EAc5, EAc6
and EAc7.3. Projects that are registered before August 1 will be
able to continue with the existing energy performance thresholds.
The CaGBC would like to thank all
of those who provided feedback from across the country, and for
continuing to help shape the progress of LEED Canada for Homes.
We'd also like to recognize the great work being done by the
hundreds of dedicated green home builders in Canada who are
committed to improving the way homes are built now and in the
