Rebuild Initiative


The ReBuild Initiative is inside the Energy In Cities research team run by Dr. Evins, where we use research to create data-driven retrofit solutions for energy-efficient buildings.

The ReBuild Initiative is an industry-government-academia consortium that will undertake 16 projects that encompass the breadth and complexity of the challenge, each co-designed with a partner organization to apply specific areas of research to meet their needs.

The goals of our work are threefold: we want to develop new methods and tools for building energy retrofits; facilitate the exchange of knowledge, data and software between academia, industry and government partners; and we hope to include future policy regulations within Canada. Through the various research efforts our team will develop modelling approaches, develop software tools and create knowledge for a better informed code of buildings.
