Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Science and Sport and to the Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility, Kate Young, on behalf of Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, Amarjeet Sohi, announced a $40,000 investment for Ingredion Canada Corporation for an energy management information system (EMIS).
An energy management information system (EMIS) is a performance management system that enables individuals and organizations to plan, make decisions and actively manage their energy use and costs. By integrating an EMIS, facilities can expect an estimated 5 percent reduction in their energy use and cost.
"Energy efficiency has long been a focus area for Ingredion as it helps us achieve manufacturing efficiency, manage our costs and be a good steward of the environment. Collaborating on this project with NRCan and our Canadian solution providers is an important milestone in using our facility's information and data-driven decisions to deliver more efficient energy management," said David Wilcox, Plant Manager, London facility, Ingredion Canada Corporation.
CIPEC includes more than 2,300 facilities representing 20 industrial sectors and over 50 trade associations. An award-winning partnership between the Government of Canada and Canadian industry, CIPEC advances industrial energy efficiency by promoting the uptake of energy management systems, best practices and technologies.
