Reg. 397/11. Energy management initiatives can produce </p><p>environmental, economic and social benefits, including reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, cost </p><p>avoidance and increased savings. As concerns surrounding energy availability and cost continue to rise, a </p><p>CDM Plan is a proactive step toward an effective long-term solution. Our energy efficient capital and </p><p>operating process improvements are key components to our success and are outlined in our report. </p><p>Georgian College is committed to the path of sustainability, in all aspects of our scholastic facility. </p><p>Current energy use for all of Georgian Colleges campuses is below industry averages for post-secondary </p><p>education institutions in Ontario. We will continue to improve these results, and constantly strive to achieve </p><p>maximal efficiency. </p><p>Our Goals and Objectives </p><p>As a leading post-secondary educational institution and </p><p>responsible corporate citizen, Georgian College is committed to </p><p>practicing environmental sustainability through education and </p><p>corporate practices and balancing future growth with the </p><p>protection of the environment. Implementing a strategic CDM Plan </p><p>will address the interconnected issues of indoor environmental </p><p>quality, energy use, and facility operations. Our goal is to </p><p>continuously monitor our current practices, so that maximal </p><p>operating efficiency can be reached and resources can be allocated </p><p>more appropriately to serve our community. </p><p>In conjunction with the Environmental Sustainability Committee, </p><p>the college will continue to evolve its strategy to: </p><p> Review our practices to explore opportunities for improved </p><p>results. </p><p> Enhance energy conservation education and awareness for </p><p>both students and staff. </p><p> Integrate Georgians energy CDM Plan and data into classroom and experiential learning opportunities </p><p>for students. </p><p> Continue to monitor and optimize energy consumption for all of our facilities. </p><p> Build bridges with local industry leaders to support academic transition to workforce support for </p><p>sustainable technology based employment </p></li><li><p> 2 </p><p>Co</p><p>nse</p><p>rvat</p><p>ion</p><p> an</p><p>d D</p><p>eman</p><p>d

promote sustainable stewardship of our environment and </p><p>community resources. In keeping with our core values of system efficiency and financial responsibility, Georgian </p><p>Colleges energy management program will aim to increase energy conservation as outlined in sections 6 and 7 of the </p><p>Green Energy Act, 2009, O. Reg. 397/11. </p><p>We continuously aim to provide students with the knowledge, skills and work-related experience required for </p><p>successful careers and lifelong learning. Not only are we devoted to equipping our students with the skills to find a </p><p>successful career, we also aim to limit any impact upon the environment resulting from the operation of our </p><p>educational facility and encourage them to do the same in the future </p><p>To obtain full value from energy management activities, and to strengthen our conservation initiatives, a strategic </p><p>approach will be taken. Georgian College will continue to fully integrate energy management into our practices by </p><p>considering indoor environmental quality, operational efficiency, and sustainably sourced resources into all aspects of </p><p>our organization. </p><p>Our Mission </p><p>As a leading post-secondary educational institution and responsible corporate citizen, Georgian College is committed </p><p>to practicing environmental sustainability through education and corporate practices and balancing future growth with </p><p>the protection of the environment. </p><p>Our guiding principles </p><p>Georgian College commits to promote, practice and pursue excellence in environmental sustainability through: </p><p> Compliance with applicable laws and requirements </p><p> Conservation of natural resources and the prevention of pollution </p><p> Continuous improvement to maintain the highest environmental standards and practices. </p><p>Among the Colleges core values in our strategic plan Focus 2015 is Environmental Sustainability. </p></li><li><p> 4 </p><p>Co</p><p>nse</p><p>rvat</p><p>ion</p><p> an</p><p>d D</p><p>eman</p><p>d M</p><p>anag</p><p>em</p><p>ent </p><p>Pla</p><p>n </p><p>3 ONTARIOS GREEN ENERGY ACT OVERVIEW </p><p>Ontarios Green Energy Act (GEA) was created to expand renewable energy generation, encourage energy </p><p>conservation and promote the creation of clean energy jobs. </p><p>Promoting Energy Conservation </p><p>Conserving energy not only saves money for our organization, it also lowers demand on the electricity </p><p>system and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. </p><p>Through ongoing conservation efforts, Ontario has saved more than 1,900 megawatts of peak demand </p><p>electricity since 2005 the equivalent of more than 600,000 homes being taken off the grid. Our </p><p>commitment to conservation has resulted in energy efficiency gains at our facilities, while encouraging our </p><p>community to do the same. </p><p> The GEA continues to promote conservation by: </p><p> Making energy efficiency a key element of Ontarios building code. </p><p> Creating new energy efficiency standards for household appliances. </p><p> Working with local utilities to reach assigned conservation targets. </p><p> Protecting low-income Ontarians through targeted conservation programs. </p><p>http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/source/statutes/english/2009/elaws_src_s09012_e.htm</p></li><li><p> 5 </p><p>Co</p><p>nse</p><p>rvat</p><p>ion</p><p> an</p><p>d D</p><p>eman</p><p>d M</p><p>anag</p><p>em</p><p>ent </p><p>Pla</p><p>n </p><p>4 BUILDING SURVEYS Georgian College is an integrated network of facilities with programs serving the communities of Ontario in </p><p>education, preparation, and providing the opportunity for success.
