    1 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The following Energy Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) Plan is written in accordance with

    sections 6 and 7 of the Green Energy Act, 2009, O. Reg. 397/11. Energy management initiatives can produce

    environmental, economic and social benefits, including reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, cost

    avoidance and increased savings. As concerns surrounding energy availability and cost continue to rise, a

    CDM Plan is a proactive step toward an effective long-term solution. Our energy efficient capital and

    operating process improvements are key components to our success and are outlined in our report.

    Georgian College is committed to the path of sustainability, in all aspects of our scholastic facility.

    Current energy use for all of Georgian Colleges campuses is below industry averages for post-secondary

    education institutions in Ontario. We will continue to improve these results, and constantly strive to achieve

    maximal efficiency.

    Our Goals and Objectives

    As a leading post-secondary educational institution and

    responsible corporate citizen, Georgian College is committed to

    practicing environmental sustainability through education and

    corporate practices and balancing future growth with the

    protection of the environment. Implementing a strategic CDM Plan

    will address the interconnected issues of indoor environmental

    quality, energy use, and facility operations. Our goal is to

    continuously monitor our current practices, so that maximal

    operating efficiency can be reached and resources can be allocated

    more appropriately to serve our community.

    In conjunction with the Environmental Sustainability Committee,

    the college will continue to evolve its strategy to:

    Review our practices to explore opportunities for improved

    results.

    Enhance energy conservation education and awareness for

    both students and staff.

    Integrate Georgians energy CDM Plan and data into classroom and experiential learning opportunities

    for students.

    Continue to monitor and optimize energy consumption for all of our facilities.

    Build bridges with local industry leaders to support academic transition to workforce support for

    sustainable technology based employment

    2 INTRODUCTION The purpose of Georgian Colleges CDM Plan is to promote sustainable stewardship of our environment and

    community resources. In keeping with our core values of system efficiency and financial responsibility, Georgian

    Colleges energy management program will aim to increase energy conservation as outlined in sections 6 and 7 of the

    Green Energy Act, 2009, O. Reg. 397/11.

    We continuously aim to provide students with the knowledge, skills and work-related experience required for

    successful careers and lifelong learning. Not only are we devoted to equipping our students with the skills to find a

    successful career, we also aim to limit any impact upon the environment resulting from the operation of our

    educational facility and encourage them to do the same in the future

    To obtain full value from energy management activities, and to strengthen our conservation initiatives, a strategic

    approach will be taken. Georgian College will continue to fully integrate energy management into our practices b
