An important message to all respondents

On behalf of the Canadian Industry Partnership for Energy Conservation (CIPEC), I would like to thank you for responding to the 2019 Industrial Consumption of Energy (ICE) survey.

Energy efficiency plays a key role in Canada's efforts to reduce energy use and GHG emissions, while strengthening competitiveness and maximizing profits. Your participation in the ICE survey enables us to track industry's progress and help meet Canada's Pan-Canadian Framework objectives of clean growth and a low carbon economy. Specifically, the ICE data is used to help build the business case for funding and program renewals, monitoring sector progress and celebrating industry's energy achievements.

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) supports industrial organizations in improving their energy performance through program activities such as:

  • Energy management frameworks;
  • Cost-shared financial assistance;
  • Tools, guides and technical information; and
  • National and international networks.

An example of NRCan's program activities includes providing support for the implementation of energy management systems, such as ISO 50001. Over 160 Canadian facilities are certified to ISO 50001. The list of compliant and certified facilities is expanding – because it is saving businesses money and improving their ability to compete. Canadian companies that have implemented ISO 50001 have improved their energy performance on average 10% within 2 years, resulting in up to $10 million in annual cost savings.

NRCan and CIPEC can help you produce results and save costs. Contact us today to learn more about how we can support your organization in improving your energy performance.

Thank you again for your participation.
