Comments on proposed changes to the National Building Code and National Energy Code for Buildings

The Pembina Institute submitted comments on proposed changes to the National Building Code of Canada and National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings.

Key Points:

  • The National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) and the National Building Code (NBC) should include greenhouse gas intensity metrics, in addition to the current energy efficiency metrics.

  • The NECB and the NBC should include a cap for the embodied carbon associated with buildings. These metrics should be developed and added to the tiered energy performance requirements in the next revision.

  • To facilitate assessment of ongoing performance, builders of all new Part 3 buildings and eligible Part 9 buildings should be required to create and set up an Energy Star Portfolio Manager account for the project.
