The ecoEnergy for Industry programme, which is part of the Government of Canadas ecoACTION initiative, is designed to improve industrial energy intensity and reduce energy-related industrial greenhouse gases and air pollution. This programme is delivered through the long-standing Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC), a voluntary programme between the Government of Canada and industry that brings together industry associations and companies representing more than 98 percent of all industrial energy use in Canada. To help large industry deal with regulations introduced as part of the Clean Air Act, and to stimulate action across all industries, the ecoENERGY for Industry programme will devote approximately CAD 20 million to encourage information-sharing on new technologies and best practices in energy use; training for energy managers to identify and put in place energy-saving projects; and cost-shared assistance for energy assessments that identify a wide range of ways to improve energy use. The ecoEnergy for Industry programme is expected to achieve energy savings equivalent to the energy used by between 65,000 and 146,000 households.
