Energy Management Projects

The energy management project financial assistance can help reduce the cost of conducting projects that improve energy performance at the plant and/or sector level.

Eligible projects may include, but are not limited to, the following: development and dissemination of tools and information related to energy efficiency; development, organization and delivery of training; assessments, evaluations and benchmarking studies; and development of technical guides and reports, implementation roadmaps and best practices studies.

NOTE: Facilities located in British Columbia may be eligible for additional cost-shared financial assistance that is being provided by the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines.

CAN/CSA-ISO 50001 Standard Implementation Pilots

Cost-shared assistance is offered to support the implementation of the ISO 50001 Standard in industrial facilities. The companies undertaking pilots would achieve energy performance improvement by implementing this standard.

The purpose of this new voluntary ISO 50001 Standard is to enable organizations to establish systems and processes necessary to take a systematic approach to achieve continual improvement of energy performance.

The standard should lead to reductions in energy cost, greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts. This standard is applicable to all types and sizes of organizations.

The final deliverable will include a report of energy performance improvement and implementation of ISO 50001, details on the measures undertaken to meet the ISO 50001 Standard, e.g. energy baseline, energy performance targets, timeline for achievement of targets, monitoring and reporting procedures as well as projected results from the implementation.

If your organization is considering a CAN/CSA-ISO 50001 implementation and is seeking a Canadian registrar to certify your plant upon completion, a Canadian accreditation program is in place. More information on the Energy Management Systems Accreditation Program is available from the Standards Council of Canada Web site.
