MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

Canada must be a world leader in energy efficiency, not just energy production

Let’s be clear — Canada can maintain economic prosperity while driving down its greenhouse gas emissions that are contributing to global warming. 

As a company involved for 25 years in energy management, I know this to be true. So does the Business Council of Canada.
The Council’s Task Force on Canada’s Economic Future recently released its study, “A Better Future for Canadians”.

Earlier this year, I participated in the Council Roundtable consultations.  The report identified priority recommendations and rationale for the incoming Federal government. If implemented, the policies would lead to a better future for our country.

BLOG/ When disaster strikes, here’s what we’ve learned so far

Several recent natural disasters have forced some of our North America clients to curtail their business operations.  

In California, the public utility cut power to a million properties. Pacific Gas & Electric adopted these measures during a severe drought, to keep damaged powerlines and transformers from sparking flames and more fires.

A customer in South Carolina was forced to close their plant during the past hurricane season. Winds, rain and the risk of flooding forced the evacuation. 

In Texas, a power generating station was flooded by an extreme storm event, cutting electricity to consumers for many days.

In Ontario a sub-station was flooded, also cutting power from the grid. Our customers in both jurisdictions were among those affected.

The 2015 Ft. McMurray wildfire forced the evacuation of a site and the termination of a customer’s operations for many weeks.
As we reflect on the experiences of our clients in coping when disaster strikes, we’ve learned some lessons.
