Building Efficiency Enhancement Services

What is the Building Energy Efficiency Service?

The Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative’s Building Energy Efficiency Service (BEES) provides a turn-key, 100% financed, cash-positive, energy retrofit. Guaranteed by a third-party, BEES includes ongoing monitoring and maintenance, ensuring cost and energy savings are realized.

Retrofits are community financed, enabling public benefit and increasing your building’s sustainability profile. Find out more about the Co-op’s services here.

Eligible buildings include:

  • Multi-unit residential buildings (tower type)
  • Recreational facilities
  • Commercial facilities
  • Institutional facilities

This short video outlines the immense positive impact that energy efficiency retrofits can have for existing buildings. Many thanks to The Atmospheric Fund for creating such an informative, clear video.

The Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative would like to acknowledge the City of Ottawa’s Energy Evolution Catalyst Program. Through this program, the Co-operative was able to carry out free energy audits for five housing co-operatives and non-profit residential buildings. This support enabled comprehensive energy retrofits, and provided the opportunity to explore accessible financing routes for future retrofits.
