It pays (literally!) to take the SEP Program!

Burlington ON, February 25, 2009: 360 Energy Inc., one of North America’s leading energy services firms, in conjunction with Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC), and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority through its Partners in Project Green initiative will host two Sustainable Energy Planning Workshops on April 15 and April 23, 2009 in Kitchener and Toronto, Ontario.

It pays (literally) to participate in this program

360 Energy's Sustainable Energy Planning Program has recently been approved by the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) SMART Program as being available for up to $6,000 in funding as part of their SMART Assessments initiative. These assessments offer "in-depth examinations of potential areas of business improvement. Assessments can focus on areas such as productivity, throughput, quality, waste, environmental impact, energy efficiency, and IT best practices." Funding is available through May 31, 2009.

Furthermore, additional funding for the program is contributed by Union Gas and/or Enbridge (depending on your site's location), and if you're a manufacturer, EMC as well.

A 3 phased approach to creating and implementing an energy plan

Participants of the one-day Sustainable Energy Planning Workshop (SEP) will focus 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-wide best practices and energy saving techniques will motivate companies to capitalize on missed opportunities while identifying what internal resources they have available to generate sustainable savings.

For those that are interested, a site pre-assessment can also be accomplished outlining who should take the SEP program and the current strengths and weaknesses of the active energy management strategy. This is intended to provide the company with a clear picture of what areas they can expect to be improved after the SEP session. After completion of the workshop, 360 Energy will also be offering additional support to help develop a plan, sell the concept to senior management, and ensure resources are available to meet your goals, objectives, and reduction targets. Successful execution will pave the way to utilizing the appropriate technology and creating a sustainable energy program for years to come.

The most recent workshop, hosted in association with EMC was held in Hamilton, Ontario on February 12, 2009. Attendees included employees from Chrysler, ArcelorMittal, and the Ontario Clean Water Agency. Since 2007, over 40 world-class organizations have participated and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars through the 3-step process. For a full list, please view the brochure below.

360 Energy’s President and CEO, David Arkell says, “completing the workshop is imperative for any leading organization to remain profitable, strengthen their competitive advantage, and continue the focus on green initiatives. 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.”
