Dear Readers,

In New Brunswick late last month, the Premier's Awards for Energy Efficiency were handed out for the first time. This issue of the Energy Management e-newsletter includes case study highlights of a few of the winners. If you're looking for first-hand case study knowledge, I encourage you to sign up for ENEX09, which will feature presentations from representatives of Husky Injection Mouldings, Crown Metal Packaging, and St. Mary's Cement, among others. Learn how these and other companies have become energy management leaders — and how you can do the same!

Dealership leads transportation industry with energy efficient new facility
