1. Improving Industrial Energy Efficiency 6 th Annual High- Performance Manufacturing Conference Cobourg, November, 2010

2. 2 Presentation Overview Why Energy Efficiency CME/NRCan benchmarking survey Government of Canada GHG emissions policy Prices? Where to begin The CIPEC Approach 7 Steps to improving your energy management practices Practical examples

3. 3 148 plants participated in the study between October 2008 to July 2009 CME/NRCan Survey

4. 4 Low implementation of technical best practices (TBPs) Most plants have implemented 42 percent of TBPs Small- and medium-sized plants have implemented almost 10 percent less TBPs than large plants Technical best practices

5. 5 Low implementation of MBP in Primary Metal manufacturing Other manufacturing Fabricated Metal manufacturing Low implementation of management best practices (MBPs) Higher implementation rates of MBPs were observed in : Chemical Non-metallic Mineral Transportation and Machinery Food and Beverage Management Best Practices

6. 6 Report findings Energy projects managed on an ad-hoc basis, while best practices not widely implemented. Large plants have implemented, on average, close to 30 percent more MBPs than SMEs. When a company follows management best practices, they generally will have a higher implementation rate for technical best practices.

7. 7 Report findings If all the remaining economically feasible best practices were implemented, total Ontario industrial energy use would decrease from 2007 levels by 29% Reference Case and Economic Potential Scenario energy use for all industry

8. 8 Source: NRTEE Getting to 2050 Climate Change Policy Additional reduction GHG Emissions for Industry 610 Mt Canadas GHG emissions target for 2020 240 Mt the amount Canada plans to reduce GHG emissions by 2020 120 Mt the amount of GHG emission reductions to come from the industrial sector by 2020 Under the Government of Canada revised Turning the Corner a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 17% from 2005 levels by 2020. Energy efficiency (EE) key to Canada achieving its climate change commitments!

9. 9 Rising Energy costs The report, done for Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) projects electricity costs for business could jump by between 47.1 and 63.7 per cent by 2015. - CME September, 2010

10. 10 Industry Challenges Difficult to obtain company financing to implement EE projects. Too much effort to access assistance, funding and incentives. Lack of human resources to focus on energy management. Production is the dominant focus. Do not know where to find reputable energy service providers. Do not know how to identify and assess EE opportunities. Have limited knowledge of EE opportunities/products. Advanced EE products are not easily available.

11. 11 7 Steps to Good Energy Management 1. Get Involved 2. Assemble an Energy Team 3. Train Staff 4. Assess Energy Use 5. Eliminate Waste - Maximize Efficiency 6. Capital Projects 7. Report and celebrate Where To Start?

12. 12 An industry/government partnership to promote energy efficiency cut operating costs improve productivity reduce GHG emissions and air pollution Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation CIPEC 1.
