NRCan Housing Archetypes for Energy Analysis

A library of archetypes representing low-rise Canadian residential buildings from the province of Québec. The archetypes are intended to support energy analysis, but may prove useful for other applications.

Natural Resources Canada developed this library by consolidating data from two sources:
– Audits of Canadian homes completed through the EnerGuide rating program (more information)
– The Survey of Household Energy Use (SHEU), administered by Statistics Canada (more information)

This API is developed as part of OGC Testbed-18. The API is a work-in-progress and subject to change. Some geometries have errors.
