Funding:ecoENERGY Efficiency for Equipment Standards and Labelling is one element of the ecoENERGY Efficiency initiative, which has been allocated CAD 195 million in federal funding over five years (fiscal year 2011/2012 to fiscal year 2015/2016).
Description:

Natural Resources Canada’s ecoENERGY Efficiency for Equipment Standards and Labelling program builds upon the success of previous programs by supporting three integrated elements to improve the efficiency of energy-using products sold in Canada and thus reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The program will:

1) Continue to implement regulated minimum energy efficiency standards through amendments to the Energy Efficiency Regulations.

2) Enhance labelling and promotion programs that have historically paved the way for the introduction of new and more stringent standards and that are closely aligned with U.S. developments.

3) Accelerate the introduction of new high efficiency products to the market by providing support for product showcases, deployment and monitoring.
