ENERGY STAR for Industry certification
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) recognizes the most energy efficient Canadian facilities with ENERGY STAR® for Industry certification.
Industrial facilities located in Canada can earn ENERGY STAR certification and display the ENERGY STAR symbol, similar to those seen on appliances and electronics in the marketplace.
Use ENERGY STAR Energy Performance Indicators (EPIs) to help benchmark your facility’s energy performance against similar facilities in your industry in Canada and the United States, generating a score on a scale of 1 to 100.
