Energy Efficiency

With new technology and information available, Canada has great potential to use energy more effectively. Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) works in the fields of housing, building, communities, industry, and transportation to help Canadians realize this potential and take advantage of the benefits of energy efficiency, such as lower energy costs, cutting emissions, improving operating performance, and increasing asset values. By working with professionals in these fields, and collaborating with other government departments, and other Canadian and international partners, NRCan is helping Canada to lead the way in energy efficiency.
