Energy Star certification launches for Canadian commercial buildings
April 6, 2018 — Energy Star certification is now available in Canada for commercial and institutional buildings.
Eligible buildings include the following, with additional building types to be added over time:
• Commercial offices
• K-12 schools
• Medical offices
• Senior care communities and residential care facilities
• Supermarkets and food stores
• Ice and curling rinks
The Government of Canada will now recognize commercial and institutional buildings that have strong energy performance with Energy Star’s mark of energy efficiency. The program is expanding to recognize members of the building sector for their “exceptional” energy performance, corporate management and environmental stewardship, says the government.
The first buildings to be certified will receive additional recognition through the “Who Will Be the First?” challenge. Buildings with an Energy Star score of 75 or higher can participate in the competition. Applications should be submitted via the Energy Star Portfolio Manager until April 30, 2018.
