January 26, 2018
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is pleased to inform residents of a call for Expression of Interest (EOI) under the Energy-Efficient Buildings RD&D Program.
The $48.4 million program is provided through Natural Resources Canada and will support the development and implementation of building codes for existing buildings and new net-zero energy-ready buildings through RD&D initiatives that:
- Accelerate development and adoption of technologies, design and construction
- Provide more cost-effective solutions
- Validate locally with real-world demonstrations
- Build confidence for adoption of updated codes
Only Canadian organizations are eligible and the repayable contribution is expected to range from $250,000 to $5 million per project.
The deadline is February 21, 2018.
“Energy conservation is very important. When we conserve energy, it costs less to heat and light our homes. I encourage any local, eligible organizations to consider applying for this funding,” concluded MP Eglinski.
