Passive House modelling software is currently not a recognized modelling tool to demonstrate compliance with the National Energy Code for Canada (NECB). As a consequence, a project is required to complete a second energy model, at additional cost. To address this, a formal submission to the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes is being prepared to consider adoption of Passive House as an alternative compliance path. The objective is to align with the Commission’s Long-Term Strategy for Developing and Implementing More Ambitious Energy Codes.
We’d like to invite other members of Canada’s Passive House community to help craft the submission or sign their name on the submission. If interested, please contact Andrew Peel, at [email protected].
