Confidence You Can Take to the Bank
Education Session Room - 205 C | 1:20pm-2:10pm
Presented by CaGBC
Standardizing Building Energy Retrofits to Increase Funding Opportunities. Are you a developer looking for a quality assurance mechanism for originating your retrofit project? Are you an investor looking for a steady stream of high-quality, pre-certified projects? Are you a program administrator looking for off-the-shelf technical requirements and best practices to attract high quality contractors, private investors and projects? If you said yes to any of the above questions, then you need to learn about an innovative new tool for developing building retrofit projects: The Investor Confidence Project (ICP) and their Investor Ready Energy Efficiency (IREE) certification. By standardizing the way in which energy efficiency projects are conceived, developed, measured, and verified, the IREE certification is transforming how the market underwrites and invests in energy conservation measures for existing commercial and multifamily buildings. To help introduce this tool in Canada, the ICP Early Adopters Program is enabling retrofit projects to pursue the IREE Certification with added technical support and industry recognition.
