Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation

The Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) is a voluntary partnership between the Government of Canada and industry. The Partnership, representing more than 98 percent of all industrial energy use in Canada, is tasked with helping companies cut costs and increase profits by providing information and tools to improve energy efficiency.

The CFA has been an active CIPEC member since 1999 and has a seat on the CIPEC Taskforce Council, represented by Judith Arbour, CFA and the CIPEC Executive Board, represented by Bradley Robertson, ESCO.  This collaboration has initiated several projects including the Guide to Energy Efficiency Opportunities in Canadian Foundries and the Energy Efficiency Benchmarking Study for Canadian Foundries.
