Energy Modelling Guideline Version 2
For buildings that are greater than 2000 m2 GFA, Tier 1 requires the submission of a “Design Development Stage Energy Report” prior to Site Plan Approval that demonstrates a minimum level of compliance in accordance with the applicable version of the Toronto Green Standard energy efficiency requirements. An “As-Constructed Stage Energy Report” is required for Tier 2 or higher levels of performance, based on Issued for Construction drawings, and submitted prior to the completion of third party verification of Tier 2 or better projects. Refer to the applicable Energy Report Terms of Reference:
Planning applications submitted before May 1, 2018
- Version 2 Toronto Green Standard Energy Report Terms of Reference and Guidelines, and report submission requirements.
The City’s Environment & Energy Division will review the Energy Reports and determine if the buildings have been designed to achieve Toronto Green Standard energy requirements.
Projects may be eligible for a financial incentive for the energy savings achieved in the fulfillment of the Toronto Green Standard requirements. The High Performance New Construction Program offers design assistance and substantial financial incentives for building owners and design decision makers who exceed the electricity efficiency specified in the Ontario Building Code.
Contact the Environment & Energy Division’s Energy Efficiency Office to discuss your project in more detail or for more information about the Energy Report submission requirements at 416-392-1500.
