Nova Scotia to launch net-zero resource hub

Tuesday, October 10, 2023

Commercial and multifamily landlords in Nova Scotia are invited to check out a new resource hub for net-zero buildings. It’s set to launch later this month with an agenda to help nurture retrofit expertise and connect property and facilities managers to a range of services for pursuing decarbonization.

The new Building to Zero Exchange (BTZx) is envisioned as a collaborative forum to promote low-carbon building performance, bringing together building owners/managers, technology and service providers, researchers and policy-makers. Membership is free and open to organizations and individuals with an interest in net-zero buildings and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Founding sponsors include: the Nova Scotia government and its energy efficiency agency, Efficiency One; Halifax Regional Municipality; national not-for-profit, the Clean Foundation; the Construction Association of Nova Scotia; Dalhousie University and Nova Scotia Community College. Collectively, they are pledging to: help build Nova Scotia’s net-zero capacity; champion policies and codes to drive the adoption of low-carbon technologies and net-zero development; and support research and pilot projects that can accelerate uptake and/or demonstrate large-scale applications.

An official launch event is scheduled for October 25 at Dalhousie University in Halifax.
