Implementing a Wed-Enabled Home Energy Efficiency Dashboard (HEED) to Support Green Real-Estate

Total Funded: $50,000
Location: Calgary, Alberta

The goal of this grant is to work with decision support specialists and CREB® to (i) create a web-enabled home energy-efficiency dashboard (HEED) that provides long-term evidence of a home’s energy performance and energy investment information – based on unique HEAT Scores™ and HEAT Maps™ (derived from airborne thermal images of Calgary homes), and monthly energy consumption data – that is easy to use, secure and transferable (between seller and buyer); and (ii) evaluate HEED’s ability to support green real-estate sales in Calgary.
