Conservation Outlook

Investments in conservation play a key role in the reliability of the electricity system now and into the future. Conservation investments today reduce the province’s longer-term energy needs and reduce the need for new generation and transmission infrastructure. The graph below, taken from the Ontario Planning Outlook, shows the impact of conservation programs and the implementation of codes and standards to help meet the province’s energy needs over the next two decades.

Visibility of Energy Conservation in Ontario

Measuring Ontarians’ interest and engagement in energy efficiency is used in the design and delivery of conservation programs. In 2015, overall engagement results found that 88 per cent of Ontarians believe they know what to do to reduce energy use and that their own efforts are worthwhile, yet roughly half believe that more progress can be made to use energy wisely.
