Energy Efficient Buildings Research, Development and Demonstration

UP-DATED July 2020: The Energy Efficient Buildings Program is planning to launch a new call for RD&D project proposals in the fall of 2020. Please keep a watch on this web page for additional details.

Proposals submitted under the Energy Efficient Buildings Research Development and Demonstration Call in 2018 have since been selected and notified.

Program Background

Our government is investing $182 million to increase energy efficiency and address climate change by improving how our homes and buildings are designed, renovated, and constructed. $48.4 million is going to support the development and implementation of building codes for existing buildings and new net-zero energy-ready buildings through RD&D initiatives that:

  • Accelerate development and adoption of technologies, design and construction
  • Provide more cost-effective solutions
  • Validate locally with real-world demonstrations
  • Build confidence for adoption of updated codes

Eligible Applicants

Only Canadian organizations are eligible; individuals and foreign entities are ineligible. Details are outlined in the EOI Applicants' Guide.

Program Funding Limits

The contribution is expected to range from $50,000 to $5 million per project.

NRCan reserves the right to alter the currently envisaged process, funding amounts and deadlines, or to cancel the entire application process at its sole discretion. Any changes will be communicated to registered applicants via email.
