Quebec has committed to being a North American leader in renewable energy and energy efficiency by 2030. The government has outlined certain targets they seek to achieve by 2030:
- Enhancing energy efficiency by 15%
- Reducing the amount of petroleum products consumed by 40%
- Eliminating the use of thermal coal
- Increasing overall renewable energy output by 25%
- Increasing bioenergy production by 50%
The government’s 2013-2020 Climate Change Action Climate Change Action included energy efficiency measures. In mid-2018, Energy Transitions Quebec, an agency under the province's Energy and Natural Resources Ministry, released a plan to establish energy efficiency as a priority resource (the 2018 - 2023 energy transition, innovation and efficiency master plan).
Major programs in Quebec include:
- ÉcoPerformance: seeks to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of businesses by funding projects or measures linked to the improvement of processes related to the consumption and production of energy. It is available to businesses, institutions and municipalities that consume fossil fuels or use processes that generate fugitive GHG emissions to enable them to make the transition to reducing emissions.
- >Hydro Quebec’s Efficient Solutions Program: businesses and institutions who are beginning a renovation project, planning a new building or plant, etc. may receive financial assistance equal to as much as 75% of eligible costs.
Hydro Quebec’s Electricity Systems Management Program: program to help businesses develop a better understanding of their building electricity use and the efficiency of their processes, systems and equipment. Also helps businesses with ongoing identification of the potential areas of improvement in their systems.
Énergir’s Energy-Efficient Renovations Grant: aimed at encouraging renovations that will improve the thermal envelope of buildings to make them more energy efficient. It offers financial assistance for energy efficient work on the building envelope, such as: replacing the windows, insulating the walls, insulating the roof, sealing the building, etc.
Énergir’s New Efficient Construction Grant: aimed at encouraging the construction of energy efficient buildings that will reduce their operating expenses and increase their resale value.
