– Canadian Energy Efficiency Outlook: A National Effort to Tackling Climate Change


Since the early 1970s, energy efficiency (EE) has been recognized as the most relevant mechanism to optimize the way we meet our energy needs. The introduction of EE building codes, standards and labels, and energy performance contracting schemes are but a few initiatives developed in Canada over the past 40 years.
This talk will provide a quick overview of each province’s or territory’s history related to the EE sector and how legal and institutional frameworks have evolved will enable participants to understand about the key success factors supporting the development of the EE field.
A number of case studies will also be discussed featuring utilities, nonprofits and private associations to highlight those key success factors and showcase unique and innovative initiatives.
