Energy Manager program

Energy managers unlock savings you didn't know existed.

For large organizations, a dedicated energy manager is one of the best hires you can make. The Energy Manager program is the largest of its kind in North America, helping to save energy and drive Ontario’s competitiveness.

What does an energy manager do?

Energy managers have the strategic and technical expertise to recommend the energy-saving equipment and technologies that are right for your business. They also have the skills to implement an energy management strategy for your business – working directly with your operations team, vendors and service providers, and managing financial incentives that support project success and benefit your company’s bottom line.

Why hire an energy manager?

Energy managers mean business. They're trained to find energy savings, identify smart energy investments, secure financial incentives and unlock competitive advantage.

I’ve been an energy manager with Atlantic Packaging since 2012. Since I joined the company, we’ve reduced our electricity costs by ten percent and lowered the Global Adjustment charge by almost 50 percent. My employment contract requires me to reduce consumption by two percent annually at each of our facilities, and that means I’m accountable every day for delivering results based on our company’s energy strategy.
