Energy guidance for policymakers

Ultimately the role of legislators is to improve both quality of life and the environment. There’s a tsunami of transformation in buildings coming soon that few in the industry expect, and even fewer are ready for. Governments know climate change is real, and better buildings are part of the solution.

You know that with the right policies and incentives, neighborhoods can soon produce more energy than they use, with healthier, more comfortable occupants, who will have more energy savings in their pockets while living in homes with zero emissions.

Homesol can help. Our institutional memory goes way back to buying our first blower door when the older Trudeau was Prime Minister. Our consultants have the experience and building knowledge to help you transform the next generation of housing. We can assist with:

• housing policies, standards and codes
• certifications, labels & programs
• workforce training & education
