A Pioneering Research Initiative for Sustainable Homebuilding.
In 2017, two different homes were built:
One features standard technologies according to the current building code. The other exceeds code requirements using the latest technologies to enhance energy efficiency.
Once families moved in, sensors throughout the homes started documenting energy consumption and cost efficiency. Currently, both homes are being monitored and compared by a research team at UBC Okanagan’s School of Engineering.
Every month, new results are published here.
