HALIFAX, Nova Scotia - Nova Scotia Power is working with industrial stakeholders to deliver a demand side management (DSM) program that will have an industrial component. The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board will begin consultations with various stakeholders to determine the best way to administer programming in Nova Scotia this month.

By 2009, the DSM program aims to reduce industrial energy consumption by 44,000 megawatt hours. It will cover lighting retrofits, HVAC control systems, compressors, and variable speed drives.

Smaller operations in Nova Scotia already have access to a wide range of assistance related to energy efficiency. For example, the Eco-Efficiency Centre in Halifax has a suite of programs for small and medium-sized enterprises.

One of the centre’s flagship programs is the Eco-Efficiency Business Assistance Program. This program offers an eco-efficiency opportunity assessment, including data collection, identification of opportunities and potential savings, preliminary cost estimates, and recommendations for next steps. The assessment can also include reviews of energy, water, and material use; equipment; process operations; management practices; and environmental policy. Companies pay $500 for a standard $2,000 assessment.

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is a centre partner. Other contributors include Natural Resources Canada’s Industrial Program Division.
