EnerQuality says it has launched a new Net Zero Energy Technology Adoption Program (NZETAP) which the organization says is “designed to embed emerging energy saving technology into new homes faster.”
“NZETAP is all about overcoming barriers to net zero energy homes technology adoption.,” EnerQuality says in a statement. “Overcoming barriers such as lack of awareness and incomplete product knowledge is key to accelerating the use of net zero oriented building products and technologies into mainstream housing.”
“Ontario home buyers have long benefitted from the existence of both innovative builders and technology suppliers,” said Shannon Bertuzzi, EnerQuality’s vice-president of market development.
“However, the co-ordination between supply and demand has at times been imperfect. This imbalance is being fixed by EnerQuality’s efforts to match and partner 23 select Ontario homebuilders with 18 net zero energy efficiency technology and technology manufacturers.
The builders are located in Ontario and technology and product suppliers come from across Canada.
