We can all agree that burning fewer fossil fuels is desirable, so if we are going to keep building homes that burn fossil fuels, then let’s at least work to burn the smallest amount possible!  Led by Bruce and Mary, Enbridge’s  Savings by Design (SBD) engaged more than 200 individual builder teams and projects – demonstrating in every single case how to achieve at least a 25% better energy performance than building Code requirements.  As a direct result of the program, more than 3,000 new homes in Ontario have been built to a standard 25% better than the energy performance demanded in the energy code.  In 2016 alone, the program identified an estimated 75,000 tonnes+ of CO2e that could be avoided by design changes identified through the process.
