In a low-carbon, clean growth economy, buildings and communities will be highly energy efficient, rely on clean electricity and renewable energy, be smart and sustainable. Net Zero buildings have a role to play in this. Net Zero can take on different meanings according to what your measuring; energy and carbon are the two most widely discussed in residential construction. Net Zero Homes produce as much clean energy as they consume. They are up to 80% more energy efficient than typical new homes and use renewable energy systems to produce the remaining energy they need. Every part of the house works together by design. The Government of British Columbia has set targets for all new homes (and, soon, substantial renovations) to be measured as Net Zero energy ready by 2032. That’s just 10 years from now. But not to worry, the skills and technologies needed to reach these targets are here today. Using our understanding of building science, energy modelling skills and familiarity with common building practices and materials, energy advisors play a pivotal role in the development of single family homes and multi-unit residential construction that meet the requirements of a Net Zero designation by working closely with builders, renovators and homeowners to help them make the most appropriate choices for their projects.
Rebates & Incentives
Building or renovating a home is a large project and an investment in your future; and project costs are rising. Rebates and incentives can be really beneficial in helping a client become aware of different methods and products available to them while offsetting some of the upfront costs. There are federal and provincial rebates available for both renovations and new construction projects. At Ecolibrium Energy Solutions, we are all Program Qualified energy advisors that can assist you in accessing these incentives.
