October 3, 2022 – Through Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) Office of Energy Efficiency, the Canadian Industry Partnership for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) is conducting a series of three, 60-minute webinars.

CIPEC will share information related to energy efficiency, such as the Energy Star for Industry Program and its certification, and hear about clean energy from Gurvinder Chopra, vice-president of Standards & Regulations with Electro-Federation Canada.

Webinar 1 of 3 is scheduled for October 19, 2022, from 1 pm to 2 pm (ET).



• 1 pm – Introduction with Freitas Tola.

• 1:05 to 1:30 pm – Energy Star for Industry Program (Sam Likely, senior program officer, NRCan)

Energy Star for Industry Certification: benchmarks industrial energy use across Canada and the U.S. and recognizes facilities that score in the top 25% of most energy efficient.

The Energy Star Challenge for Industry: the program is designed to establish or reinforce fundamental energy management practices in industrial facilities and improve energy performance. Facilities participate by pledging to reduce their energy intensity by at least 10% within five years. To qualify, at least 50% of a facility’s energy use must be from manufacturing and/or R&D, and a facility must be able to set a baseline energy metric.

• 1:25 to 1:45 pm – Clean energy /net-zero and GHG reduction (Gurvinder Chopra): Perspectives from the electrical sector, and an introduction to Electro-Federation Canada.

Net-zero for modernizing our electrical infrastructure: How innovations within the electrical sector are contributing to the change. How manufacturers are looking into energy-efficient plants.

1:45 to 2 pm – Q&A
