dc.description.abstractCanada has undertaken to become self sufficient in energy by 1990. To buy the necessary time to develop domestic supplies, energy transport systems and to extend the time life of energy reserves, we have embarked on an energy conservation program which aims at a 2% growth rate in energy use by the year 1990. The primary objective of the Industry Energy Conservation Program is to achieve a high degree of energy efficiency in manufacturing and process industries. Reduced energy costs in industry achieved through intelligent investment and operating practice is central to the program strategy. The industry program has been developed in consultation with Canadian industry and is completely voluntary on their part. The program has five main elements: 1. Industry Energy Conservation Task Forces 2. Information and awareness packages 3. Fiscal and Financial incentives 4. Industry Data Base Development and 5. Industry policy studies. By selecting the voluntary approach to deal with energy conservation we have maintained the traditional cooperative relationship between government and industry in Canada and have been able to manage a successful energy conservation program with a minimum of government intervention and bureaucracy. Industry sets the energy conservation goals, identifies the opportunities to conserve energy, and finally reports on the improvements in energy efficiency. Government for its part supports industry with a number of program elements designed to overcome the many barriers to energy efficiency which exist in Canada. These programs are deliberately biased to deal with the liquid fuel supply situation in eastern Canada and to encourage the use of wood waste as a fuel. As new barriers to the efficient use of energy are identified these programs are modified accordingly.en_US
