“…The CBBIF provides funds for projects and programs that accelerate the availability and affordability of low-carbon building solutions including advanced building designs such as Passive Houses, new construction methods, such as the use of mass timber, and and ultra-efficient building components, such as heat- and energy-recovery ventilators.


Funding for this round will include $1 million for a Vancouver-based demonstration of a new heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) technology by Zamba Technologies Ltd. and a $800,500 Victoria-based energy assessment tool by Audette Analytics Inc. which uses machine learning, aerial imagery and property assessment records to identify and support clean retrofits of rooftop air-handling units in commercial buildings…


…The funding is part of B.C.’s CleanBC Roadmap to 2030 plan, which includes requirements for all new buildings to emit zero carbon by 2030. B.C. has provided approximately $14.6 million for 41 CBBIF projects since 2019...”
