Jurisdiction Options for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Buildings

This Jurisdiction Options Discussion Paper is one of the research reports providing technical information for the Green Building Leaders Project.

The purpose of the Project is to generate technical and legal information to help participating local governments (both municipalities and regional districts) understand how existing local government jurisdiction can be used to implement high energy performance in buildings, and to engage with the provincial government on possibilities to enable local governments to take leadership in this area.

The ultimate goal is to increase energy efficiency in buildings, reduce the amount of energy the building uses, and reduce GHG production.
