Edmonton's Building Energy Benchmarking Program improves building energy efficiency, and contributes to significant energy savings and greenhouse gas reduction by providing owners with information about their building. The program supports building owners and operators to reduce energy consumption and will help them transition to the mandatory building energy labeling initiative announced by the Federal Government in the Pan Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.

Registration Open for Year 5

Although Year 5 of the Building Energy Benchmarking (BEB) Program has not been officially launched yet, we are accepting new registrations! To meet the Building Energy Retrofit Accelerator (BERA) program eligibility requirement, new BEB applicants may register for the Building Energy Benchmarking Program using the Year 5 Building Registration and Consent Form.

The program completion dates and participant requirements are subject to change at this time, but we will communicate any changes as they happen. We will follow up when Year 5 is officially launched if any additional information is required.

If you have any questions, please contact Abhishek Chakraborti at abhishek.chakraborti@edmonton.ca.

Energy Audit Rebate Program

The City of Edmonton will provide a one-time rebate of 50% of the cost, up to $10,000, per eligible building. A maximum of three rebates can be provided per owner or ownership group, as defined by the City of Edmonton at its sole discretion, each year to help cover the cost of an energy audit in participating buildings. Eligible buildings must:

  • Participate in Edmonton’s Building Energy Benchmarking program.
  • Have undergone an American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Level 2 commercial energy audit.
  • Share the audit report with the City, along with proof of payment for the audit services. The audit report must be comprehensive and meet certain criteria to ensure quality.

Learn about the application process and eligibility in this information sheet. Applications will be accepted until November 30, 2020. If you’re ready to apply, please fill out this application form. Find out more about the form.

Program Results

Edmonton’s Year 3 Building Energy Benchmarking Report includes highlights from Year 3, comparisons of results from previous years and a number of building showcases that exemplify high-performing, energy efficient buildings in Edmonton.

Due to the growing number of participating buildings, we've introduced an online interactive dashboard that allows users to quickly and easily explore the results of the benchmarking program with building level data and broad category information.
