Electrical Code & Grid Challenges for Highly Efficient Homes in Alberta

BILD Alberta’s Accelerate Net Zero Steering Committee identified the Canadian Electrical Code and Alberta’s electrical grid as challenges for industry to build highly efficient and net zero homes, and to continue reducing greenhouse gas emissions. BILD Alberta is working to understand all the associated challenges, including the electrical grids current capacity, demand load calculations, and the affordability of electrification. With this BILD Alberta is determining what work is currently underway in the province, and what BILD Alberta can do to support the construction of highly efficient homes, and continue reduction of industry’s greenhouse gas emissions.
