Nova Scotia 2nd place for overall energy efficiency and 1st overall for programs in the 2022 Canadian Energy Efficiency Scorecard 

Nova Scotia 2nd place for overall energy efficiency and 1st overall for programs in the 2022 Canadian Energy Efficiency Scorecard 

Today Efficiency Canada formally released its 2022 Canadian Energy Efficiency Scorecard.  

In the 2022 Scorecard Nova Scotia moved up one spot to take the second-place ranking overall and moved up one spot to come first for energy efficiency programs.  The Scorecard notes that improvements to overall efficiency programs, including our increased commitment to programming for low-income Nova Scotians and diverse communities, provincial governments commitments under the EGCCRA, and peak electricity demand savings all contributed to our increase. This is the 4th year for the Efficiency Canada Scorecard, which assesses energy efficiency policies and outcomes introduced or implemented in each province each year between January and June. Nova Scotia has consistently placed in the top 3 since the Scorecard was first published. 
 
There is a lot of work to do to meet climate targets, and to be successful, we will look to the driving forces of our past success: our people; our partners; and the values we commit to everyday. We are confident in Nova Scotia’s ability to lead the way to a low-carbon future.
