Season 1, Episode 2

Recorded on Oct 26, 2022

The biggest source of future operational emissions from the building sector will come from existing, rather than new buildings. Retrofits which target massive reductions in operational emissions are essential to address the climate crisis and will need to be scaled up dramatically over the next decade. In British Columbia, electrification is the most effective strategy to achieve significant, immediate, and real emissions reductions.

This event was the second in a six-part series focused on deep emissions retrofits. The presenters shared best practices for reducing emissions from homes, from both a building-specific and local government perspective.

ZEBx co-hosted this event with the Home Performance Stakeholders Council (HPSC).
