Nova Scotia Ranks 3rd in 2021 Provincial Energy Efficiency Scorecard

Nova Scotia Ranks 3rd in 2021 Provincial Energy Efficiency Scorecard

Today Efficiency Canada formally released its 2021 Canadian Provincial Energy Efficiency Scorecard. This is the third year for the Scorecard, which assesses energy efficiency policies and outcomes introduced or implemented between January 2021 and June 2021.

Nova Scotia maintained our 3rd place ranking for overall energy efficiency policy and our 2nd place ranking for energy efficiency programs. The report notes Nova Scotia’s strong energy savings performance and high per capita spending on Indigenous programs (highest in Canada) and low-income programs (second highest in Canada). Maintaining our 3rd place ranking is a testament to the continued efforts of our entire team and Nova Scotians we support to achieve high energy savings and continuously innovate our programs and services.

The Scorecard echoes key recommendations in our recent White Paper, such as the adoption of federal and provincial building codes to facilitate the transition to net-zero. We are confident that we have the right tools in Nova Scotia – new climate-focused legislation, strong energy efficiency programs, and Nova Scotians passionate about making changes – to get us to net-zero and to move us up in the ranking.
