Energy Management E-news


Dear readers:

The important responsibility of energy management professionals cannot be minimized. In my opinion, this responsibility will only grow in the future as green energy and climate change awareness expand, and the population—and the burden it places on energy systems—continues to grow. The proof is everywhere and can be found in this e-newsletter. For example, the Government of Nova Scotia is investing $1 million in green technology projects; in BC, the LDB received a $50,000 rebate for installing energy-efficient boilers; in Alberta, the provincial government is offering a new commercial lighting incentive. There is also a growing demand for education in energy management. Just a few weeks ago, the University of Calgary introduced an MBA program specifically for energy management; in this e-newsletter, you will find a news item about the Centennial Energy Institute and its new IBEX program for energy management folks.

If businesses and institutions want to survive in the future, they will need to have top-quality energy management individuals. If you're an energy manager, continue to educate yourself on your trade and stay updated on regulations and incentives—this is your time to shine.
