Nova Scotia recognized as a national leader in energy efficiencyNationTalk; Indigenous Lands and Resources Today
Nova Scotia continues to be a North American leader in fighting climate change by reducing emissions and now our province is being recognized as a national leader for energy efficiency efforts.
The Efficiency Canada study released today, Nov. 19, ranked Nova Scotia best in Canada for energy efficiency programs and for having the most highly trained energy efficiency workforce.
“We understand that becoming more energy efficient reduces emissions and creates opportunities for businesses in our green economy to grow and create jobs throughout the province,” said Energy and Mines Minister Derek Mombourquette. “This report shows that our investments in becoming more energy efficient and the choices Nova Scotians have made are a big reason for our success in fighting climate change.”
Nova Scotia received the highest score in Atlantic Canada for overall energy efficiency and fourth nationally, closely trailing British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. Nova Scotia has also set the most ambitious climate change goals in Canada.
The report also recognizes that Nova Scotia has made considerable investments in programs that target energy poverty.
