Find out how the ReCover Initiative proposes to retrofit an apartment building (circa 1980) to Net Zero Energy in a matter of days!
About this Event
Current methods for retrofitting buildings are not simple. Deep energy retrofits take months and is disruptive to building occupants. Every project is custom and expensive. There are not many successful deep energy retrofit examples in Canada for these reasons.
In response to these challenges, ReCover is bringing to Nova Scotia an innovative retrofit initiative based on the Dutch EnergieSprong methodology. Adapted to suit our province, this process will enable old buildings to be upgraded to net-zero ready standards in a matter of days.
Most of these materials are sourced right here in Nova Scotia, so we can rebuild the local economy while creating sustainable careers.
ReCover is not a proprietary initiative. We’re building a community around our work to share our research and lessons learned. Our goal is to enable Nova Scotia to scale with the speed necessary to address climate change and build a sustainable economy.
