The Pembina Institute is seeking an ambitious and goal-driven individual to join its B.C. team as a senior analyst. We are assembling a market development team to accelerate the commercialization of ‘deep resiliency’ retrofits: integrated approaches to building retrofits that eliminate carbon pollution, increase extreme weather and earthquake resilience, improve indoor air quality, and preserve affordability. Inspired by the Dutch Energiesprong program (energiesprong.eu), this five-year initiative will bring together service providers, building owners, regulators, and financiers to pilot innovative approaches to retrofits and establish conditions for replication at scale. The initial focus will be on low-rise wood frame buildings, a common archetype in B.C.’s social housing and market rental housing stock.
Decarbonizing our building sector and preparing our infrastructure for a more unpredictable climate requires a paradigm shift in how we procure, finance, design, execute, and insure retrofit services. Both the provincial and federal governments are reinvesting billions of dollars to repair and upgrade our social housing infrastructure in the next ten years. This investment presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize the retrofit ecosystem so that new solutions can be deployed at scale.
