Introducing the BOMA Canada Net Zero Awards



Introducing the BOMA Canada Net Zero Awards

It’s an exciting time when the possibility of having a net zero building is very real. That’s why we are proud to introduce the BOMA Canada Net Zero Awards, supported by Natural Resources Canada. These awards will recognize the leadership of owners, developers, designers and/or managers of buildings which demonstrate significant progress along the path towards net‐zero energy. Our purpose is to help industry and move the market towards net‐zero energy. The BOMA Canada Net Zero Awards will be officially launched at this year’s BOMEX in September and the first recipients recognized at Calgary’s BOMEX 2018.

The awards will be presented in three categories:

  1. Best In Class/Net Zero Award: recognizing buildings that have achieved a net‐zero energy
    status, or have shown to be near net‐zero, based on a minimum of 12 months of data verifying
    their energy usage and/or production.
  2. Most Improved Buildings: recognizing existing buildings which are significantly improving
    their energy performance over their own baseline.
  3. Innovation Award: recognizing buildings that have put in place exceptional strategies (such
    as management practices or technologies) that lead to a demonstrable and replicable significant
    reduction in energy consumption while also providing a return on investment. Technologies or
    practices that enable the building to generate significant amounts of renewable energy on‐site
    while still providing a return on investment will also be recognized for this award.
