An Energy Audit will help Aboriginal communities and organizations understand how energy is used in their buildings and identify opportunities to save energy and financial resources. A detailed energy assessment will support community decision making, estimate energy savings, and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions if building retrofits are completed in the future. This baseline analysis prior to completing energy efficiency retrofits has many benefits, including:
• Accurately assessing the efficiency of existing buildings;
• Assessing potential energy and cost savings if retrofits are completed;
• Making informed decisions on building retrofits; and
• Helping Indigenous communities maintain and improve building performance and operations.
