Commercial electric water heater - July 2017

Last updated: 5 November 2017
On March 4, 2017, the Office of Energy Efficiency at Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) issued a Notice of Intent to amend Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations (the Regulations) to adopt minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for commercial electric storage water heaters. This technical bulletin has been released to initiate the consultation process and to collect stakeholder views on the requirements being considered for commercial electric storage water heaters.
Input received during this stage of the process will inform the development of the Amendment 15 proposal. In addition, NRCan is undertaking a cost-benefit analysis using the best-available Canadian market data to assess the economic and environmental impacts of these updated standards and to ensure Canadian consumers and businesses benefit from their implementation.
The Government of Canada intends to pre-publish a regulatory proposal in the Canada Gazette, Part I, within approximately two years of this bulletin.
