Energy management best practices for federal facilities

Streamlining with best practices

Federal organizations consume a lot of energy. That's a fact. The good news is that the opportunity exists to reduce the amount of energy your organization uses.

Implementing tried and true energy management best practices allows you to lead by example, streamline your operations, make your building more energy efficient, save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which will help to achieve the Government of Canada's target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent from the 2005 levels by 2020 in federal operations.

In addition to general energy management best practices for all building types, federal organizations are also guided by the Government of Canada's Federal Sustainable Development Strategy which outlines specific targets and implementation strategies for federal departments and agencies to adhere to.
