Energy Conservation Plan

Five-year Energy Conservation and Energy Management Plan 2018-2024

The Board's plan aims to reduce energy consumption through strategies based on renewable energies and energy management, including the following elements:

  • Design and construction
  • Operations and maintenance
  • Occupant behavior

Our energy management strategy consists of:

  • review and analyze our energy consumption using the Energy Consumption Database (BOGE);
  • identify designs and constructions, operations and behaviors to correct in order to reduce our consumption;
  • continue to include as many green elements as possible in our construction projects;
  • improve or replace equipment that increases our energy consumption;
  • educate the occupants of our buildings on the behavioral changes necessary to reduce our consumption.

The energy efficiency improvements in the schools of the Conseil scolaire catholique de district des Grandes Rivières were partially funded by the Government of Canada.
