Energy Efficiency Projects

Improving the efficiency of energy usage is a key component in transitioning our businesses and communities to a more sustainable future. These projects often have potential to dramatically improve the quality of energy use through a variety of methods. Below are a list of core indicators that should be maximized to increase the impact of the proposed project.

Core Indicators

#1) Annual energy savings in MWh/GWh (electricity) and GJ/TJ (other energy savings) /a

#2) Annual GHG emissions reduced/avoided in tonnes of CO2 equivalent /b

Other Indicators (Examples)

• Number of people benefited

• Annual Absolute (gross) GHG emissions from the project in tonnes of CO2 equivalent /b /c
