(Toronto, June 7, 2006) Ontario’s Chief Energy Conservation Officer (CECO), Peter Love, will tell a meeting of energy industry leaders tomorrow that consumers, utilities and governments invested more than $300 million on conservation and demand management initiatives in 2005.
Love’s announcement will come as part of his first Conservation Update, outlined during the keynote speech of the Ontario Energy Association’s (OEA) Conservation-Demand Management Forum and Trade Show, tomorrow in Toronto. The event takes place on June 8, 2006 at 8:30am at the Doubletree International Plaza Hotel, Toronto Airport.
The Update, the consultant’s study that calculated the investment figures and tomorrow’s speaker’s notes—to be posted at www.conservationbureau.on.ca at 9:30am tomorrow– are being published seven months after Love’s first Annual Report released last November. The Update covers ongoing and planned initiatives supported by the Conservation Bureau and dozens of community and government partners.
Love will be available for media questions immediately following the speech or at the Conservation Bureau, throughout the day.
