Hello everyone!

I am working with an NGO in Nova Scotia, Canada to promote energy efficiency in municipalities and non-profits. I do this with presentations focusing on case studies and incentives available and I would really like to include 10 (or less) of the best "bang for your buck" practices.

I have an example list for Australia, but it doesn't align very well with Nova Scotia's climate. Australia is trying to keep the heat out so their number 1 is "Painting roofs white" whereas we are trying to keep the heat in.

Does anyone have a list of the best energy efficiency actions for a similar climate to Nova Scotia's that they are willing to share?

Thank you!
