The Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan was developed to fulfill reporting requirements of the Green Energy Act 2009 and to support UOIT’s commitment to improving energy performance and reducing overall energy usage within the built environment, operations and programs. Additionally, this comprehensive plan contributes to the development of a larger foundation and framework that will ensure continuous sustainability integration throughout the UOIT
campus and community.

This Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan has two parts:
1. A summary of the University`s annual energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions for its operations. The first listing was submitted July 1, 2013 for the 2011 calendar year, and is due annually thereafter.
2. A description of previous, current and proposed measures for conserving and otherwise reducing the amount of energy consumed by the University`s operations and for managing the public agency’s demand for energy, including a forecast of the expected results of current and proposed measures. O. Reg. 397/11, s. 4 (2).


A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with sustainable building operation and maintenance guidelines and policies:

The CDM2014 Plan is reviewed and updated yearly, calculating GHG emissions for each building each year. To reduce energy on campus, buildings are retrofitted in accordance with the CDM2014 Plan.
