National Energy Model for Buildings in Canada

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • detail the major components of the building envelope
  • recognize commissioning and recommissioning processes as accepted practices for building owners and manufacturing process managers based on latest Energy provisions
  • incorporate the commissioning process in a successful design and construction approach based on the latest Energy provisions
  • specify the key steps and tools used in the commissioning and total building commissioning process to achieve the requirements based on the specification
  • transition from the current design-build-supervise process to the commissioning process with the latest provisions
  • adopt the total building commissioning process principles in your organization based on the latest Energy provisions

The National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) sets out technical provisions to address energy efficiency in the design and construction of new buildings and additions to existing buildings. In the context of the NECB, the use of the term "energy efficiency" shall be understood to mean "energy use efficiency".

In this course, you will consider the primary goals of the National Energy Model for Buildings in Canada for new construction, but also explore the activities and roles of the Energy Model. The KEY objective of this Code is to limit the probability that, as a result of the design or construction of buildings, resources will be used in a manner that will have an unacceptable effect on the environment, caused by excessive use of energy.
