Performance Highlights Energy efficiency programs are evolving to meet the unique needs of Alberta businesses and communities
Since spring 2017, Energy Efficiency Alberta has designed and delivered the programs that Alberta’s industrial facilities, businesses, institutions and households have been asking for.
Energy Efficiency Alberta’s programs have evolved to focus on Alberta’s industrial and commercial sectors, supporting innovation in efficiency technologies and financing programs that support big energy savings.
These investments have delivered more than $692 million in energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions, or $84 in net savings per tonne for the avoided 5.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
The $218 million from our programs has attracted additional private sector investment to deliver $850 million in economic growth for the province—that’s four times the program investment.
About us Energy Efficiency Alberta is the province's expert on saving energy.
Since the launch of an initial suite of popular programs in spring 2017, we now offer more than 20 programs for industrial and commercial businesses, non-profits, institutions and households, including a methane emissions reduction initiative for the province’s oil and gas sector. We introduced financing programs to help fund larger improvement projects and deeper energy savings. We also support energy education for students and educators, technical training for industry professionals, and community projects to make homes and buildings more sustainable.
We work with businesses across the province—product and services suppliers, home improvement companies, contractors and retailers—to transform how customers reduce energy consumption. This increased economic activity is helping create jobs, grow local businesses and diversify our economy through an expanding energy efficiency and renewable energy sector.
Energy Efficiency Alberta is a provincial agency created through a rigorous consultation process and led by an expert advisory panel. The panel consulted broadly with Albertans, including Indigenous communities, municipal governments, industry organizations and utilities, businesses, and individual stakeholders to determine the types of programs we deliver. The agency is headed by a diverse Board with expertise in energy efficiency, Alberta’s energy and industrial sectors, governance and community building.
