Energy efficiency is a critical solution to climate change, reducing emissions and helping Canadians to save money on their energy bills. The Government of Canada is pleased to work with partners to advance this work. The important work of ENERGY STAR Canada award recipients brings us one step closer to achieving Canada’s low-carbon future.

Today, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, congratulated the winners of the 2023 ENERGY STAR Canada Awards for their exceptional contributions in promoting the most energy-efficient products, homes and buildings — helping Canadians reduce energy waste and take action on climate change. 

Through the ENERGY STAR Canada Awards, ENERGY STAR Canada recognizes contributions made by outstanding program participants in advancing energy efficiency across the nation. Annually, this event honours energy efficiency leaders who have set the bar high for efficiency efforts. 

Since 2001, the ENERGY STAR Canada program has played an instrumental role in promoting and inspiring energy-efficient practices across the country. Through the certification and promotion of products, homes and buildings, ENERGY STAR program participants empower Canadians to make informed decisions to help them save money, lower emissions and bring us closer to a net-zero emissions future. In 2022 alone, ENERGY STAR-certified products saved enough energy to power over 323,000 homes for a year.

The following businesses and organizations were recognized as ambassadors of energy efficiency and as examples of the value of investing in smart energy choices. They have distinguished themselves as environmental leaders, showcasing innovative solutions and driving transformative change through energy efficient products, homes or buildings:
