Energy Efficient Homes - #AskNRCan

Allow us to introduce you to Natural Resource Canada’s online magazine Simply Science—this online news source provides the latest developments in the fields of energy, forestry, mining and earth sciences through articles, podcasts and videos. We recently used the Ask NRCan podcast platform to update Canadians on information about “The Future of Energy Efficiency for Homes.”

In the episode, our senior technical advisor, Chris McLellan, talks about the next generation of energy-efficient homes in Canada. Tune in to hear about how NRCan is shaping its voluntary energy efficiency housing programs as energy performance in codes and new technologies take centre stage.

Also, as we settle more into the digital space, if you have any questions on this topic head to Twitter and tweet at us using the hashtag “#AskNRCAN”. Our experts will do their best to answer all relevant questions.
