ABOUT THE REGISTRY

 

By 2030, all new homes will be Net Zero Ready—and Net Zero by 2050.

 

Are you ready for this monumental shift in building construction?

The Registered Energy Efficient Builder Registry (REEB) makes it easier for consumers to find trained, high-performance builders and renovators for tomorrow’s net zero housing.

 

The registry is a two-fold process: first, we train builders in energy-efficient construction, gathering the latest innovations from the Government of Canada, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association New Brunswick (CHBA-NB), and programs such as the Certified ENERGY STAR® for New Homes, Certified R-2000, and Qualified Net Zero, with certifications from all.

 

Then, we serve as the gathering point for homeowners to find the certified builder or renovator that’s right for their project—and help them access the government incentives and rebates that help jumpstart their energy-efficient home.

LEVELS OF ACHIEVEMENT

We have branded levels of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum to give consumers context on the accomplishments of our Registered Builders and Renovators. If you proceed to build and Certify a Net Zero Home you will automatically reach the Platinum Level on the Energy Efficient Builder Registry without having to comply with Steps 1 and 2.

Attend the 4-day Building Science Workshop on the ENERGY STAR® Standard, and construct an ENERGY STAR® home (Bronze Level) certified by the Government to be at least 20% more efficient than parameters set by the National Building Code, with a minimum airtightness of 2.5 Air Changes per Hour (ACH).

After attending the 4-day Building Science Workshop on the R-2000 Standard, construct an R-2000 Home (Silver Level) certified by the Government of Canada to be at least 50% more efficient than parameters set by the National Building Code, with a minimum airtightness of 1.5 Air Changes per Hour (ACH).

The Net Zero Builders’ Training was included in the 4-day Building Science Workshop. The next step is to consult with a Licensed Net Zero Energy Advisor and construct a Natural Resources Canada Net Zero Ready Home (Gold Level) certified to be at least 80% more efficient than parameters set by the National Building Code, with a minimum air airtightness of 1.5 Air Changes per Hour (ACH).

The final step in the journey is to build a Net Zero Home (Platinum Level) certified to the Standards of the CHBA Net Zero Home Program. Consult with a Licensed Net Zero Energy Advisor for 100% more efficiency than parameters set by the National Building Code, with a minimum air airtightness of 1.5 Air Changes per Hour (ACH).
