Burlington ON, November 19, 2008: On the coat tails of two successful Sustainable Energy Planning Workshops in Kelowna, British Columbia and in Windsor, Ontario, 360 Energy and Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC) have partnered to offer a workshop on Wednesday, December 10, 2008 in Hamilton, Ontario.
On November 6, 2008, and facilitated by 360 Energy, a dozen FortisBC managers and staff participated in the workshop and a successful partnership with EnWin Utilities and Union Gas saw fifteen people from various organization’s in Windsor participate on November 13, 2008.
The participants focused on five key areas of energy management while assessing their current energy management programs by developing a scorecard and baseline map of their current activity. Exposure to over 60 world-class energy management best practices and saving techniques have motivated these companies to capitalize on identified opportunities while recognizing what internal resources they have available to participate and generate sustainable savings. The processes, programs, and projects identified should lead to bottom-line energy savings between one and twenty-five percent on electricity, natural gas and water.
“Energy conservation and cost reduction needs to be a constant and sustainable initiative to be effective. Organizations, utilities, and municipalities across the country are beginning to realize there are options with respect to how they use and manage energy. Sustainable energy planning is a great starting point for all organizations. Being able to prioritize energy ideas, actions that will be taken and enlisting help from others for implementation is invaluable. It creates a real team environment and demonstrates their effectiveness at being a leader at a provincial level and throughout the community,” says David Arkell, President of 360 Energy Inc.
The next workshop will be held in Hamilton, Ontario on Wednesday, December 10, 2008. Depending on your jurisdiction, Union Gas or Enbridge Gas Distribution will be providing a rebate after successful completion of the program. In a similar fashion, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade will also be offering a rebate to all Ontario manufacturer’s that attend.
