Multiple benefits of energy efficiency
Our programs help save energy and money, make homes and businesses more comfortable and efficient, and help our province consumes less energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Improved energy efficiency can make businesses and industrial facilities more competitive by reducing operating costs, including those in our traditional oil and gas sector. Energy efficiency can reduce the need to add new generation and invest in new transmission and distributions infrastructure. And for those struggling to pay their utility bills, energy efficiency education and upgrades can help alleviate energy poverty.
A Broad Mandate
Our mandate includes raising awareness about energy use and promoting, designing and delivering programs related to energy efficiency, energy conservation and the development of micro-generation and small-scale energy systems in Alberta. We’re also dedicated to helping Alberta’s energy efficiency industry grow to drive economic growth, diversify our economy, and create local jobs for people like engineers, electricians, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and solar installers.
And we’re just getting started. Individuals and businesses, institutions, industries and communities across Alberta ready to realize the full benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy.
