Energy Code Enforcement

Section 9.36 of the Alberta Building Code speaks to energy efficiency requirements for new construction. The requirements were established by the National Research Council and Natural Resources Canada to improve energy efficiency of buildings while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The above noted section speaks to the principal building components and systems in housing and small buildings which are defined in Clause 9.36.1.3 of the 2014 Alberta Building Code. This includes the building envelope, heating and hot water systems.
