Today, the Energy and Mines Ministers Conference (EMMC) released a federal-provincial-territorial framework for energy efficiency standards. Encouraging Market Transformation through Collaboration on Energy-Efficiency Standardsis a framework that defines how governments can collaborate to achieve greater harmonization on energy efficiency standards. The accompanying Action Plan will establish joint priorities for new and updated energy efficiency standards, establish strategies to prepare the market for future regulations and improve regulatory development, implementation and transparency. The Action Plan for 2016-17 was released as part of this package, and outlines specific deliverables for governments over the coming year.
