The project examines policies and programs currently in place to promote energy-efficiency retrofits and fuel-switching in residential homes across British Columbia, with a particular focus on effectiveness and equity. After identifying several shortcomings, the study reviews residential sector decarbonization policies implemented in other jurisdictions, as well as those recommended in the academic literature, and proposes policy pathways to advance equitable decarbonization in British Columbia.
