IMPROVING ENERGY PERFORMANCE IN CANADA: REPORT TO PARLIAMENT UNDER THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY ACT, 2013-2015

IMPROVING ENERGY PERFORMANCE IN CANADA: REPORT TO PARLIAMENT UNDER THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY ACT, 2015-2016

View as:  PDF 4.41 MB

The twenty-second report under the Energy Efficiency Act summarizes the actions taken by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) in 2015-2016 to help improve Canada's energy efficiency and use of alternative fuels. Through its various programs, regulations and initiatives, NRCan continues to assist industry, individuals, and governments across Canada increase their energy efficiency and develop and deploy alternative energy sources as ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the Canadian economy, toward a low-carbon, clean growth economy.

From 1990 to 2014, energy efficiency in Canada improved by 25 percent overall. The improvement allowed Canada to avoid 90.5 megatonnes carbon dioxide equivalent of GHG emissions in 2014, the equivalent of approximately 17 percent of all of Canada’s energy-based GHG emissions in that year. Energy efficiency improvements since 1990 saved Canadians $38.5 billion on their energy bills in 2014, the equivalent of approximately 2.1 percent of Canada’s gross domestic product (GDP).
