Alberta Energy Code

Last updated: 27 September 2019
Alberta has adopted by regulation the National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) 2011 edition that came into force November 1, 2016. Alberta amended its safety Codes Act so that model national codes would be done automatically when they are published as opposed to being submitted to a lengthy provincial adoption process.

Cities of Calgary and Edmonton have created City Charters to allow for initiatives to provide greater energy efficiency and energy security and climate change mitigation initiatives such as the Building Code Energy Excellence and Clean energy loans. This will allow Cities the flexibility to raise the bar on environmental sustainability and best practices that other municipalities could learn from and adapt.
