By Anthony Capkun
June 1, 2021 – Service New Brunswick’s Energy Management branch is the recipient of $469,973 from Ottawa to support the implementation of a government-wide energy management and reporting system.
“You can’t manage what you can’t measure,” noted Mary E. Wilson, Minister of Service New Brunswick, adding the energy management reporting system “is the first critical step in managing a building’s energy performance.”
Federal funding is provided through Natural Resources Canada’s Green Infrastructure–Energy Efficient Buildings Program. Service NB is contributing $15,000, bringing the total project value to $484,973.
The investments will support the province’s Climate Change Action Plan, and will put in place energy benchmarking, labelling and disclosure in over 500 buildings owned by the Province of New Brunswick.
“SNB will continue to support the province […] through monitoring energy use in its buildings, including schools and hospitals, as well as government offices, and by taking action to conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from government buildings,” added Wilson.
