Support Retrofit Acceleration
A renovation wave of decarbonization retrofits over the next 20 years could create up to 200,000 long-lasting well-paid jobs, generate more than $48 billion in economic development each year, create significant savings in healthcare costs, and pay for themselves twice over through increased tax revenue.

In this backgrounder, we identify some of the regulatory barriers that deep retrofit projects in Canada have faced, and provide some example solutions that might facilitate exemptions for demonstration projects.

Poorly managed tenant engagement for retrofit projects involving multi-unit residential buildings can impact schedules, budgets, and project outcomes. Early, well-planned tenant engagement can ensure projects are on schedule and on budget.
This case study illustrates how integrating solar PV can improve the business case for retrofitting a low-rise multi-unit residential building (MURB) in B.C.
