Canadian energy end-use mapping
Project location: Ottawa, ON and Kelowna, BC
Project lead: CanmetENERGY Ottawa
Timeline: 4 years (2019 to 2023)
Program: Built Environment
The purpose of the Canadian Energy End-use Mapping (CEE Map) project is to develop an online map containing building energy end-use and efficiency opportunities and associated data. We are also developing best practices and standards to accelerate the adoption of deep energy retrofits and the transition to a low carbon economy. Our two main collaborators are the City of Kelowna, British Columbia and Fortis Gas and Electric.
The project prioritizes two use cases:
- municipal housing retrofit program planning
- utility conservation planning and offsetting capital costs along transmission and distribution networks
To complete this project, CanmetENERGY Ottawa is leveraging existing housing archetypes developed using the Housing Technology Assessment Platform (HTAP).We are engaging in prototyping activities in collaboration with several other divisions of Natural Resources Canada and academic and private sector organizations.
The CEE Map project is also actively contributing to the National Building Layer,* an initiative led by Natural Resources Canada and Statistics Canada to develop a national geospatial data layer of Canadian buildings.
*Please note: the National Building Layer is available via GCcollab, which is open to all Canadian public servants (federal, provincial, territorial and municipal), academics and students, as well as to all Canadians by invitation. If you have any questions about the National Building Layer, or would like to inquire about obtaining access to it, please contact Natural Resources Canada's Buildings and Geospatial Data group.
