EMC is a member of the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) Taskforce/Board and co-hosts/partners with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) on the Bi-Annual Energy Summit. EMC’s Energy Team is pleased to share this announcement on their behalf.
Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Jim Carr, launched the new ENERGY STAR for Industry program. The program is an expansion of the existing ENERGY STAR Canada program that will see Canadian industry contribute more to the transition towards a low-carbon and clean-growth economy.
Canada’s industrial sector contributes approximately 37 percent of the country’s GHG emissions. ENERGY STAR for Industry will improve energy efficiency in Canada’s industrial sector by helping facilities track, analyze and reduce their energy consumption. These actions will help industrial facilities reduce their operating costs and improve competitiveness.
ENERGY STAR for Industry builds on the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation, an internationally recognized government–industry partnership aimed at improving energy efficiency in Canada.
“ENERGY STAR for Industry will help Canadian industrial facilities reduce energy use and save money,” said Jim Carr, Minister of Natural Resources. “Helping Canada meet its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.”
ENERGY STAR for Industry certification provides energy performance indicators (EPI) that can be used to benchmark industrial facilities’ energy performance. The Integrated Steel Mill EPI is the first to be available in Canada. Additional EPIs are being developed to expand ENERGY STAR for Industry certification to include commercial baking, automotive assembly and cement and fertilizer manufacturing in Canada.
