The BC Energy Step Code is an optional compliance path in the BC Building Code that local governments may use, if they wish, to incentivize or require a level of energy efficiency in new construction that goes above and beyond the requirements of the BC Building Code. Builders may voluntarily use the BC Energy Step Code as a new compliance path for meeting the energy-efficiency requirements of the BC Building Code. Learn more about the BC Energy Step Code and local government implementation efforts.
This site is intended as a resource to help local governments, industry, and other stakeholders more effectively use the BC Energy Step Code. It is hosted by the Province of British Columbia, with support from the Energy Step Code Council.
BOABC is proud to be part of the Energy Step Code Council.
