Current Programs and Initiatives

Greener Neighbourhoods Pilot Program (GNPP)
The GNPP will pilot the Energiesprong model in Canada through initiatives supporting regional Market Development Teams (MDTs) in their work to accelerate the market for aggregated deep energy retrofits, and by supporting deep energy retrofit demonstration projects in community housing buildings in Canadian communities.

Greener Homes
Energy efficiency starts at home. Our Greener Homes will help homeowners undertake an EnerGuide evaluation and energy efficiency retrofits to make their homes more efficient, comfortable, and affordable to maintain. And, by doing so, this initiative will help us transition to a clean energy future by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and by making new and existing buildings and homes more energy efficient.

Green Infrastructure Phase II (GI)
Your green infrastructure ideas are key to building our clean economy. We want to help you accelerate the deployment and market entry of next-generation clean energy infrastructure.
