As building performance labeling is becoming a mature industry around the world, and builders looking to differentiate their products, we are beginning to see international  programs and their assessment tools making their way not only into the voluntary building labeling sector in Canada, but also into our codes and standards. We will look at three of the most popular European home energy performance systems, what are their differences and how do they compare to code.

We will hear from program proponents with experience in building and labeling these high performance homes and learn from their experiences, the opportunities and challenges of building to these labels in our Canadian climate.
