Identify ways to reduce your energy use with the feasibility study
Do you know that a feasibility study can be used to assess various scenarios to reduce energy consumption?
This is an ideal solution to help you identify your energy consumption priorities. An accredited engineering consulting firm must assist you in this process.
- You may receive up to 50% of the cost of a feasibility study, for a maximum amount of $50,000.¹
Setting up measures with the support of the grant for implementing energy-efficiency measures
Once you have the different scenarios in hand, you can determine where to invest and prioritize the energy-efficiency measures identified in the feasibility study you would like to implement.
The implementation grant is $0.30 to $1/m3 of natural gas saved for the first year following the implementation of an energy-efficiency measure.
The maximum amount of the grant is $1,000,000 per account number serviced by natural gas. Financial assistance is provided according to the industry and the return on investment (ROI) period.¹
Industry 4.0 applied to energy efficiency
Have you ever heard about plant 4.0 or industry 4.0?
In a world where the workforce and employee turnover are growing challenges, it may be wise for businesses to consider such a transformation, all the more so when energy consumption and process equipment monitoring are variables to consider. This article suggests how you can achieve this using examples applied to energy efficiency and energy management.

¹ Conditions apply. Measures should be recommended either by a techno-economic feasibility study, or by a relative or any other relevant document signed by a member in good standing of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec working for a registered firm. Measures whose return on investment period is less than one year are not eligible.
Measures already covered by our energy efficiency programs should be separate from other energy saving measures, because they are not eligible. Program subject to change without notice. For all the eligibility criteria of the program, see the Participant's Guide .
