Welcome to the August edition of the Energy Management e-newsletter.
month saw the release of the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance’s
Energy Efficiency ‘Report Card.’ The CEEA’s report card comes out once
every two years, and this year I was fortunate enough to be part of the
review committee in the process.
The results were
very good this year, with a number of provinces making real headway in
creating energy efficiency initiatives that will help businesses and
individuals make a real difference in their energy use habits. Even
more encouraging is the fact that other provinces are gearing up to
make significant changes in the coming two years. Read the news item in
this issue to get a sense of the results. The September edition of Energy Management will include broader coverage of the Report Card, so stay tuned!
Energy Excellence 2008 (ENEX08), a new energy efficiency conference being launched in conjunction with Energy Management
Magazine, is fast approaching. The conference and trade show will take
place in Mississauga on September 23 and 24. Space is limited, so sign
up now! I look forward to meeting you there.
I appreciate your feedback on anything that appears here in our newsletter. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
