Ottawa, ON — Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is accepting project proposals for its program which is said to help building owners improve energy efficiency. The ISO 50001 Financial Assistance program is accepting proposals from Sept. 19 to Oct. 21.
Funding through the program will focus on helping owners of commercial and institutional buildings implement the ISO 50001 energy management system standard to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save money and energy.
The ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems Standard is an internationally recognized voluntary standard that gives organizations a structured framework to improve energy performance by making better use of energy-intensive assets.
NRCan will provide financial assistance for up to 60 per cent of eligible costs for for-profit organizations (commercial buildings) and up to 75 per cent of eligible costs for not-for-profit organizations (institutional buildings) to a maximum of $40,000 per building. The implementation of the project must be completed by March 31, 2025.
Interested applicants must email NRCan at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an application guide.
