Built Green Net Zero Energy for New Construction is a partner project between Built Green Canada and Blue House Energy. This course introduces concepts and techniques for developing high performance and net zero energy new construction projects. In addition to advanced envelope and mechanical system content, the course includes discussion on how occupant behaviour impacts the overall energy use in a house, and affects the sizing of renewable energy systems.
The course has seven modules. Each module has a quiz at the end. You need at least a 70% grade in the quiz at the end of each module to proceed to the next (there is no limit on quiz attempts).
Once you pass the last module you take the final test, which you may only take once.
A grade of at least 70% earns you a Blue House Energy Certificate of Achievement.
