Taking Energy Conservation
to the Next Level
Deep home energy retrofits are required in order to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030 in the Halton community, and they have the capacity to enhance home comfort and reduce home energy costs.
We wanted to explore ways that organizations in Halton, including HEN, can help Halton homeowners address climate change, starting with their homes. Funded by the Investment Readiness Program via the Oakville Community Foundation, HEN conducted a feasibility study to explore the concept of a social purpose organization in helping to advance deep home energy retrofits in the Halton community making our community more resilient to climate change.
Take a deeper dive and learn more in the Report, Summary and Infographic along with 5 key recommendations outlined below.
5 Ways to Advance and Accelerate
Deep Home Energy Retrofits
1. Create collaborative partnerships among key stakeholders within the energy sector
2. Ensure authentic services and positive outcomes to build
3. Develop a simple, clear and accessible pathway for homeowners to retrofit their homes
4. Establish a robust awareness and education campaign about deep home energy retrofits for homeowners
5. Focus on neighbourhoods with the greatest impact based on design, the timing of construction and most likely uptake
We've taken the first step. Together, we can do so much more.
We are committed to...
- Share our learnings of the Deep Home Energy Retrofits Feasibility Study.
- Support homeowners in navigating the various stages of energy retrofits and energy efficiency programs.
- Explore partnerships to develop and share meaningful deep energy-efficient action to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
- Empower the Halton Community to take climate action and learn how they can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our community.
