CaGBC National Energy Benchmarking Framework Whitepaper

CaGBC National Energy Benchmarking Framework Whitepaper

Greater Vancouver Area, BC

Introba (formerly Integral Group) has been working alongside CaGBC, consulting stakeholders, and developing a white paper as the first steps toward creating a National Energy Benchmarking Framework.

The Framework focused on consistency, effectiveness, transparency, and capacity building will provide a means to simplify and streamline government policy implementation and support the pursuit of strategic investments in building improvements and energy and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) targets.

  • Benchmarking and reporting as a first step toward large-scale energy efficiency improvements.

  • The Framework intends to support local governments in developing programs that encourage or require building owners to benchmark and report annually on their energy use and GHG emissions.

  • A consistent framework across Canada will make it easier for building owners and managers to benchmark their buildings across jurisdictions.
