Power Smart for Business Community Workshops on Climate Change Pinawa – February 1, 2005
What is Climate Change? Climate change refers to any long-term change in the Earths climate and the increased variability of our daily weather patterns.
What Can We Do? Decrease the amount of GHG emissions into the atmosphere by: Reducing energy consumption Reducing energy consumption Becoming more energy-efficient Becoming more energy-efficient
Manitoba Hydro & Climate Change Committed to sustaining a diverse and healthy environment for Manitobans. Committed to keeping our average net emissions to 6% below 1990 levels over the period 1991 – 2012.
Power Smart & Climate Change Energy efficiency measures and improvements installed through Manitoba Hydros Power Smart programs reduce the amount of GHGs and other air polluting emissions from power generation.
Power Smart & Climate Change To date, 584 GW.h and 290 MW savings resulting from Power Smart program activity has provided GHG reductions of approximately 475,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions.
What Can YOU Do? Make your business Power Smart by incorporating energy efficient technologies in your commercial new construction or major renovations projects.
Power Smart for Business Power Smart for Business can help: Reduce your GHG emissions Reduce your GHG emissions Reduce your energy consumption Reduce your energy consumption Save you $$$ on energy bills Save you $$$ on energy bills Increase your bottom line profits Increase your bottom line profits Strengthen your competitive advantage Strengthen your competitive advantage
