HPSC 2020 Contractors Forum
Anvil Centre, New Westminster | February 25, 2020 | Free


Please join us for the 2020 HPSC Contractors Forum including a moderated panel discussion on The Industry Needed to Meet the Targets – Getting Ready as well as moderated table discussions on Getting to Deep Retrofits.

The Government of BC has committed to adopting the model National Building Code for existing buildings (2024), reducing carbon pollution by 2 million tonnes (2030) through better buildings, and converting home heating to heat pumps in 70,000 home through incentives of up to $3,000 per heat pump. The City of Vancouver has declared a climate emergency, issued a response, and set goals to get 100% of its energy from renewable sources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% below 2007 levels by 2050.  These initiatives, while well supported by the HPSC, will have a profound impact on the home performance contractor community. And, contractors are critical to the successful decarbonization of BC. Have your voice heard by joining your peers at the Anvil Center on February 25th.

REGISTER for the March 4th HPSC Webinar: Heat Pump Best Practices Installation Guide for Existing Homes
Online Webinar | March 4th, 2020 | Free

The Home Performance Stakeholder Council is pleased to share the recently completed Heat Pump Best Practices Installation Guide for Existing Homes  and Supplemental Resources. These resources are the result of extensive industry engagement, decades of combined heat pump installation experience and a committed project team and funding partners.

We would like to invite you to a special interactive webinar to walk through the Guide and discover all it has to offer. The webinar will review key information and best practices from the Guide, highlight contractor resources, and discuss solutions to common issues using the Guide. The goal of this training is to maximize the energy savings and GHG emissions reductions associated with heat pumps by increasing the quality of sizing, installation, and commissioning. Please register here to attend: March 4th, 8am – 10am. If you can’t make it work, don’t worry! The HPSC will be offering one more session – so stay tuned for dates.

This Guide will be referenced by energy efficiency and GHG reduction programs in BC in the near future.
