This energy efficiency initiative includes the BOMA Toronto Program, City of Toronto Better Buildings Program, and Toronto Hydro's Business Incentive Program, which are all aimed at the Toronto market, and the Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program, which is aimed at the rest of the Ontario market.
"The Summit Blue team is eager to work with the OPA and program implementation managers to assess this important initiative," said Gay Cook, Senior Consultant with Summit Blue Canada and Program Manager for this project.
The commercial and institutional segments contribute to a substantial portion of the electricity demand, especially in Toronto, and the evaluation of the program will be aimed to help improve the delivery and increase program impact.
According to Dan Violette, CEO, Summit Blue Canada is "focused on meeting the needs of the Canadian market for the full spectrum of energy efficiency and demand-side issues from planning through evaluation." These include estimation of technical potential, program design and implementation, portfolio and program evaluations, measure and market characterizations, and regulatory support and expert witness services. Summit Blue also offers a similar set of services for renewable energy and energy management projects and programs.
