O. Reg. 397/11 – Energy Conservation & Demand Management Plans
The Ministry of Energy created a O. Reg. 397/11 under the Green Energy Act, 2009. The regulation requires Broader Public Sector (BPS) organizations to create conservation and demand management plans.
The regulation has two requirements and is being implemented over a two year period:
By July 1, 2013: Report to the ministry and post 2011 energy consumption data; and
By July 1, 2014: Update annual energy consumption data + Develop and post a 5-year energy conservation and demand management plan.
Data collected through the regulation will be useful and informative to the BPS organizations themselves, to the Province, key stakeholders and Ontarians.
