Energy Efficiency Description:

Offset project proponents may use this quantification protocol to quantify the greenhouse gas emissions reductions associated with energy efficiency measures implemented in commercial and institutional buildings. To date, three projects have been registered under the commercial and instiutional energy efficiency protocol with 124,375 tonnes being submitted for compliance.
The department reviews offset projects that have been submitted for compliance with the regulation on an annual basis. The department also conducts audits on a sample size of offset projects submitted for compliance. If errors are detected the offset credits are revoked and facilities are required to come into compliance by paying into the Fund. There may be administrative penalties issued.
