Depending on where you are in Canada — or even Ontario, for that matter — the direction from all levels of government is that we are progressing towards a net zero future to combat climate change. The Government of Canada has committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, which means our economy either emits no greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or offsets its emissions. This will ultimately lead to the mass electrification of all industries and sectors, which, for our purposes, translates to fully electrified new homes and buildings.
If this becomes even more concerning as you consider the actual performance analysis of those net zero energy–ready and net zero homes, which used significantly more energy and natural gas and achieved less solar power generation than anticipated.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our webinar held on Wednesday, February 21st from 10:30am to 12:00pm.
