January 7, 2019 – British Columbia’s Energy Step Code Council has distributed a timeline for new energy efficiency requirements in the BC Building Code, in line with the CleanBC Climate Plan.

CleanBC’s plan establishes further deadlines (see diagram) for the government’s adoption of BC Energy Step Code metrics in its base building code. Three years from now (i.e. in 2022), every new building going up in the province will need to be 20% more energy-efficient than those built to the most recent requirements of the BC Building Code, which were published in 2018. And by 2032, buildings will need to be 80% more efficient than they are today.
