Description:The initial phase of the Energy Ratings System (for industry) will identify products and platforms for an energy efficiency labelling and rating programme for industry. By targeting industrial equipment, identifying effective information dissemination channels, and testing them on a sample of industries, the programme will ultimately improve the efficiency of the stock of energy-using equipment available for industrial applications, thereby leading to a reduction in GHG emissions. The Government of Canada, through its Action Plan 2000 on Climate Change, is investing C$ 2.5 million over five years to put the principles and lessons learned from the long-standing EnerGuide for Appliances Program to work in equipment markets in the industrial sector. This investment will provide and promote the information and assessment tools required for industrial energy managers, procurement and financial officers and plant engineers to include energy efficiency in their buying decisions.
