CIET Attends the AEEA Summit


CIET participated as both a presenter and exhibitor in the latest installment of the Alberta Energy Efficiency Summit, which took place in Edmonton from February 25-27. The conference was attended by around 175 participants, who shared their experiences and successes on a variety of topics, including EE project successes in an industrial context, the relationship between EE and Canada’s carbon reduction goals, how EE programs have fared in Alberta in terms of participation and conservation, the power that buildings have to realize EE gains, and the role that regional utilities and natural gas suppliers have in EE among others.


The conference also received a good amount of political participation, as both the federal Minister for Natural Resources, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, and the provincial minister of the environment, the Honourable Shannon Phillips were in attendance.


For its part, CIET delivered a presentation on the integral role that behaviour change can have on Energy Efficiency. Our goal was to focus on the often overlooked human effect on energy consumption. As we consider that there is up to a 250% variation in building energy use due to behavior alone and savings of up to 20% in avoidable resource loss (including water, energy, waste, and transport) across different sectors and industries, we gain a better understanding of the positive effects of focusing on behaviour.


Behaviour change and the involvement/empowerment of staff are also important topics in the BOC and CEM training.
