Ontario social housing providers have secured over 1 Billion dollars of funding for deep energy retrofits. This will transform existing building into high performance buildings and eliminate 25% GHG emissions from their portfolio. A major part of this work is the building envelope which will require the supply of over 1,000,000 high performance windows in the next 5 years. In this presentation, Dan Dicaire, Manager of Conservation and Sustainability at Ottawa Community Housing, will share the result from their pilot net-zero retrofit as well as their plans for retrofitting 2400 units in the next 5 years. He will also give a broader context of how other Ontario housing providers are also following suit and help shape the business case for Ontario made high performance windows now!
