Market transformation road map for energy efficient equipment in the building sector

Last updated: 5 November 2017
In support of Canada's Building Strategy, Federal, Provincial and Territorial Governments outlined a series of aspirational goals for energy performance of key equipment technologies and market transformation needs in a report released at the Energy and Mines Minister’s Conference in August 2018 entitled Market transformation strategies for energy-using equipment in the building sector. Governments in collaboration with industry are focusing their collaborative efforts on supporting market transformation for residential windows, space heating and water heating since they offer significant opportunities to reduce energy use (over 35%) when next generation technologies are installed. The objective of this road map is to outline the key initiatives that provide solutions to the market barriers identified, as well as their respective timelines, roles and responsibilities for each stakeholder group, and indicators to track success over time.
