Custom Energy Solutions helps large facilities improve productivity, save energy and save money by upgrading old, inefficient equipment and making other energy improvements. Knowing that there’s rarely a one-size-fits-all answer, we’ll work directly with you to identify your specific goals and needs. We offer end-to-end support and incentives to implement the most cost-effective enhancements in your facility.

Who is eligible?

We work closely with the following industries:

  • Manufacturing
  • Oil and natural gas
  • Wholesale trade
  • Waste management

All industrial and commercial customers with facilities operating within the Province of Alberta are eligible. Customers defined as Large Final Emitters (LFEs) or customers or facilities that have opted into the Carbon Competitiveness Incentive Regulation are not eligible.

The term “facilities” defines a broad scope of industrial and commercial operations including manufacturing facilities, industrial plants, natural gas and oil field production sites, mining operations, natural gas and oil processing plants as well as pipelines and commercial office buildings.

You’ve got options

There are a variety of ways to participate depending on your needs. We’ll help you to find the perfect fit. Below is a small sampling of what we offer.

Incentives for custom projects

Do you already know where you want to invest and what the energy reductions will be? We offer incentives for a wide range of custom energy upgrades that can reduce your operating costs, improve the comfort and performance of your facilities, and deliver a return on investment over time. Eligible upgrades include:

  • Heat recovery systems
  • Boiler systems
  • Building controls
  • Insulation
  • Gas compression
  • Gas pumping
  • Variable frequency drives (VFDs)
  • Compressed air

  • And many more

Individual facilities are eligible for incentives up to $1 million per year and parent facility implementing Custom Energy Solutions projects in multiple facilities are eligible for incentives up to $2 million per year.

While we are looking to support broad participation from all industries in Alberta, incentives will be distributed on a first come, first served basis for eligible customers that meet conditions for participation.

Incentives to support your investment decision and improve ongoing operations

Scoping audit

Incentives cover up to 100 per cent of costs.

If you aren’t sure where to begin, a scoping audit is a great first step. The audit pinpoints energy-saving opportunities in your facility and outlines potential upgrades, available incentives and estimated savings.

Retro- and Re-commissioning (Coming Soon)

Incentives cover up to 100 per cent of retrocommissioning investigation costs. 

Retro- and re-commissioning makes it easier to improve the efficiency of existing equipment, lower maintenance costs, and implement further improvements over time.
