This report analyzes data provided through the HOT2000 program to determine the efficiencies of different typological design decisions seen throughout metropolitan Vancouver and greater British Columbia. It will quantify how different architectural decisions impact energy efficiency, with a focus on TEDI, MEUI, and other costs to the homeowner or builder. These findings will help influence the BC Step Code in regards to how architectural design choices can have an impact on energy consumption.
