There are dozens of energy codes, standards, bylaws and requirements that can get kind of complicated.  So we have provided links (in blue) to several documents that are frequently used for energy efficiency and sustainability codes and standards in BC and Canada.  In addition, we've included some resources that relate to training and general guidance for some of the programs. 

We've also added some links and resources to other organizations that we are involved and aligned with.

If there are others you would like to see, please drop us a line via our contacts page.  We'd be happy to hear from you!
