Our government is investing $182 million to increase energy efficiency and address climate change by improving how our homes and buildings are designed, renovated, and constructed. $48.4 million is going to support the development and implementation of building codes for existing buildings and new net-zero energy-ready buildings through the Energy Efficient Buildings Research, Development and Demonstration program.
The Program seeks innovative projects that can demonstrate the integration of multiple cost-effective solutions to achieve net-zero energy ready houses and buildings and inform the development and adoption of model national net-zero energy ready building codes as well as the energy code for existing homes and buildings.
