Énergir helps municipalities consume less-and better!

Since 2014, Énergir's energy efficiency programs helped to:

  • Deliver 500+ energy efficiency projects in more than 60 municipalities
  • Generate savings of over 11 million cubic metres of natural gas
  • Generate GHG reductions of 22,000 tonnes—equivalent to taking 5,500 vehicles off Québec’s roads each year*
  • Provide more than $8 million in grants to municipalities

* Assuming that a vehicle clocks 20,000 km a year and emits 4 tonnes of CO2.

Measures availableEnergy efficiencyGrant
Study and implementationProvides personalized advice on the implementation of energy efficient measures, such as heat recovery, optimization of a steam network or optimization of heating.- 50% of the cost of the study
Up to $50,000
- Up to $1 000,000 following the implementation of a measure ($0.30/m³ of natural gas saved).
RecommissioningA 10%–15% reduction in consumption through the recommissioning of
mechanical systems.
Obtain up to 50% off the cost of projects
Energy-efficient renovationsImprove the thermal envelope of buildings.Up to $40,000 (consumption ≤ 150,000 m3/year)
Up to $100,000 (consumption

Low-income household supplementFinancial assistance to owners of multi-teant buildings with four or more units, one or more occupied by low-income households. The financial assistance is then shared between the building owner and the low-income households renting a unit in the building where the energy efficiency work is being carried out.

Recreation facility

City of Québec

Heating large spaces can often involve a great deal of energy loss. When building the Parc Chauveau indoor soccer complex, the goal was clear—ensure efficient heating and ventilation, excellent air quality, and especially a comfortable environment for the players, without overheating them.
