HELO Initiative

HELO LogodraftCHES Ontario, together with strategic partner the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care and technical partner, ICF Marbek, are excited to release information on HealthCare Energy Leaders Ontario, a new energy conservation initiative to help Ontario health care organisations.

Funded under the Ontario Power Authority’s (OPA) Energy Efficiency Services Providers (EESPs) initiative, HELO is part of a province-wide capability-building initiative to provide resources directly electricity users.

According to Allan Kelly, CHES Ontario Chapter chair, “we are very enthusiastic about the new energy efficiency partnership with the Coalition and all it will bring to our members across the province. We’ve assembled a tremendously talented team that will be out in the field helping to identify energy efficiency opportunities.  Together with the technical expertise of ICF Marbek, this is a fabulous opportunity for those of us whose mandate includes energy management to learn from our peers, such as those in BC where a similar program has been running, and exchange ideas on how we can implement energy efficiency initiatives and retain more money for patient services.”
