The BC Energy Step Code is a series of five steps, each with increasingly advanced energy saving standards. Step 1 means the status quo, with certification by an energy advisor. Step 2 means increasing energy efficiency above the status quo by 10 pct: Step 3 by 20 pct, and Step 4 by 40 pct. The fifth step is a net-zero building that produces as much energy as it uses. Standards in the code are measured by how much energy is being lost from the building envelope, not on the source of heat or the building materials used.
