MEDIA ADVISORY: Industry Experts Available to Talk Careers, Environment and Affordability on Energy Efficiency Day 2022
OTTAWA, October 4, 2022 — Energy efficiency provides gainful and rewarding employment for many workers across Canada. In recognition of this growing workforce and its economic and environmental impact, Efficiency Canada is pleased to celebrate Efficiency Day 2022 on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
“Energy Efficiency Day is a yearly reminder that Canadians don’t need to choose between their favourite appliances, a small energy bill and cutting their carbon emissions,” said Corey Diamond, Efficiency Canada’s Executive Director.
To mark the occasion, Efficiency Canada is connecting industry experts from across the country with local, provincial and national media. Drawn from our extensive network of energy efficiency professionals, they all have extensive expertise and unique perspectives drawn from working in the field.
All six have availability this week to provide interviews to reporters. Beyond speaking about Energy Efficiency Day, they can discuss their own unique pathways to working in the field, and energy efficiency as a driver of economic growth in their regions, a pathway towards Net Zero, and a means to make life affordable for Canadians.
In interviews, they can also give Canadian readers practical steps towards making their properties energy efficient. As subject matter experts, they can provide information on the past, present and future of energy efficiency in their respective regions. Members of Efficiency Canada’s team are also available to discuss energy efficiency policy and impact on national and provincial levels.
“No two people get started in energy efficiency in exactly the same way. Maybe you’re an insulation installer in Ontario who began going that extra mile to help your customers stay warm during the winter. Or maybe you’re in British Columbia, looking for a new career as a registered energy advisor to help your community reduce its emissions,” Diamond said. “In any case, Canada has a huge reservoir of expertise in energy efficiency, and this is only going to grow in coming years.”
On Friday, Oct. 7 at noon EST, Efficiency Canada will also host an online event marking Energy Efficiency Day. The six industry pros will give attendees in-depth knowledge on how to get started or advance in the field. The event also creates a unique networking opportunity where energy efficiency veterans and novices from across the country can network and learn from each other. Register for the event here.
