Manitoba Hydro

Process integration is a highly effective approach to optimizing energy consumption and thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions in large and complex industrial facilities with energy-intensive systems.

Through its Natural Gas Optimization Program, Manitoba Hydro provides its major industrial and commercial consumers with technical support and financial incentives to identify, evaluate and implement energy efficiency projects throughout their facilities. The program aims to reduce natural gas consumption and promotes the use of a system approach, considering at once the production, distribution and use of thermal energy (steam, hot water, etc.).

Funding for Process Integration Studies

Funding is available for energy assessments, including process integration studies, through a financial incentive covering 50% of the first $5,000 segment of study costs, and 25% of the remaining study costs, up to a maximum of $10,000.

Funding for the Implementation of Energy Efficiency Measures

For the implementation of energy efficiency measures, available funding is calculated based on the amount of natural gas saved and can cover up to 50% of the project cost, up to a maximum of $100,000.

Other funding programs for process integration studies are also available. Refer to the website’s Funding page to learn more.
