Home energy efficiency - Partners and donors
With a focus on sustainable development, Quebec's energy efficiency agency's mission is to promote energy efficiency and the development of new technologies for all forms of energy in every sector of activity, for the greater good of all regions of Quebec. The Agency also has a mission to develop three-year master plans for energy efficiency and new technologies, including implementation and monitoring.
The Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) is Canada's centre of excellence for energy conservation, efficiency and alternative fuels information. It plays a dynamic role in helping Canadians save millions of dollars in energy costs, while meeting the challenges posed by climate change. One of the OEE's main tasks is to coordinate the Government of Canada's new efficiency initiative, ecoENERGY, with its programs to reduce energy use in buildings and houses, including ENERGY STAR products, industry, retrofits, personal vehicles and fleets.
The Desjardins solidarity credit union decided to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by creating its own environmental recognition program, the HypothÉco. Any mortgage of $40,000 or more for the renovation of a single-family dwelling includes the option of an energy efficiency visit from Rénoclimat.
