About 455,000 Albertans live in energy poverty — or one in six households.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Affordable Housing Energy Efficiency Demonstration Project

The City of Calgary: The City of Calgary approved a Council Innovation Grant in 2014 to enable All One Sky Foundation to create a business case for using “whole building” energy efficiency improvements for affordable housing properties in Calgary. We used a Bankview affordable housing complex to model the costs and benefits of adding energy efficiency into a Calgary Housing Company planned retrofit.
