Sustainable Energy Management

The City of Saint John’s Sustainable Energy Management Team’s mission is to ensure that the City of Saint John is taking leadership in terms of sustainable energy by implementing and managing sustainable energy policies and measures, with the goal of reducing green house gas emissions, reducing energy costs, and improving the efficiency of the City’s infrastructure.
The Sustainable Energy Management Team isn’t focused solely on City operations. The policies and measures are also intended to affect the wider community. For instance, Brunswick Square, St. Joseph’s Hospital and other public buildings will be part of the district energy project, which takes thermal energy that’s a by-product of industry and turns it into an efficient way to heat buildings.

Other projects of the team are the Municipal Energy Efficiency Program, which reduced the City’s energy costs by $1.4 million in 2009 and cut 7,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.
The City of Saint John is a proud partner of Sustainable Saint John.
