Results of CME Ontario Energy Use Study Highlight Leadership and Room For Improvement

Published by CME webmaster on July 30, 2010

According to the results of a energy study released today by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) Ontario, leadership makes the difference when it comes to energy efficiency.

“The overlying message is simple -- if you have management commitment, you’re more likely to be further ahead on energy efficiency”, explained Ian Howcroft, vice president of CME Ontario.  “While manufacturers and industrials are much further ahead than other sectors in terms of energy management, there’s plenty of room for improvement.”
148 companies in 11 sectors participated in the study, Advancing Opportunities in Energy Management for the Manufacturing and Industrial Sector in Ontario.  Participating facilities received a report card indicating how they compared to other companies in the study. 

“We thank  Natural Resources Canada, the Ontario Government, Ontario Power Authority, Union Gas, Hydro One and Enbridge for contributing resources and expertise to ensure the project was a success,” Howcroft Added.

Stantec, Marbek and Odyna Inc provided consulting for the project.  The report also assessed the economic potential for improvement in management and technical best practices and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The full report can be viewed at or directly here, along with the addendum here.
