Canadian Super E technology launched in China

OTTAWA - The innovative Canadian Super E initiative was officially launched in China on June 6 at the opening of the Shanghai Gubei She Shan International Villa.
The project is the result of a partnership between Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and their partners in China: China Enterprise, Shanghai Gubei Group, and Shanghai Dreamhouse.
"The introduction of the Super E program is a positive Canadian contribution to the significant environmental challenges facing China, where 28 per cent of energy is consumed by buildings," said the Honourable Joe Fontana, Minister of Labour and Housing.
Super E is based on 50 years of housing research and experience in Canada's extreme climates and has already been successfully adapted elsewhere in Asia and Europe. The system emphasizes high energy-efficiency through increased insulation levels and reduced air leakage, and provides healthy indoor environments. Each Super E® home is quality tested, recognized and certified by the Government of Canada.
"Canadian Super E Healthy Housing fits well with the Chinese government effort in building healthier and more energy efficient homes," said Teng Guo Wei, Deputy General Manager of China Enterprise, a Shanghai developer. "This is why China Enterprise has cooperated with CMHC to introduce the housing system to China."
Super E was developed for international markets by NRC and is being delivered in partnership with CMHC. China Enterprise is the first Chinese developer to build Super E houses in China. Insightful Healthy Homes from Canada provided the technical coordination and several Canadian manufacturers supplied materials and components.
