Pathways to Net-Zero Buildings in B.C.: Policy Proposal

Getting new Part 3 buildings net-zero ready

These policy recommendations came out of the Pembina Institute's June 2015 thought leader forum Pathways to Net-Zero Buildings in B.C.

Two white papers were distributed to forum participants. The first focused on the history of energy efficiency requirements in B.C., and compared the approach taken to that with that of Ontario. The second articulated the rationale for net-zero ready buildings, and key policies needed to support this market transformation.

This report builds on the conversation held at the forum and on these two white papers to articulate a pathway to net-zero ready for Part 3 buildings, including targets, policies, and timelines.

A summary of the thought leader forum proceedings and logic model are also available.
