OTTAWA May 6, 2014 – CEEA’s new board of directors and executive expanded to include national representation during its annual general meeting in Toronto yesterday. The AGM followed the release of CEEA’s latest national survey – Canadian Business Attitudes on Energy Efficiency.

The 2014-2015 Board will be chaired by Andrew Pape-Salmon, senior energy specialist at RDH Building Engineering.

“We have a fantastic team. The brain power we have from the energy efficiency industry on our board will guide CEEA’s actions to improve energy affordability for Canadians,” says Andrew Pape-Salmon, CEEA chair. “We’ll be working to help provinces and territories adopt the National Energy Code for Buildings across the country, research options for a federal tax incentive and promote energy benchmarking for commercial buildings, just to name a few of our ambitious projects.”

“This is an exciting and challenging time for energy efficiency. We have to continue to convince and inform Canadian consumers and businesses that energy efficiency can save them money and energy,” says Elizabeth McDonald, CEEA president and CEO. “I know that Andrew and this board are committed to making that happen.”
