See retrofit scenarios modelled in various cities across BC
As existing buildings continue to get older, building upgrades are an important consideration, especially with the changing
climate that will increase summer heat waves. A lot of energy can be saved by bringing existing buildings up to new,
more efficient standards, reducing long-term costs of energy use and the need to install air-conditioning for heating
and cooling. Many individuals need to retrofit within a neighbourhood if a community is to reach addressing climate change.
