Energy efficiency is a critical solution for addressing climate change, cutting emissions and helping Canadians reduce their energy costs. The Government of Canada is pleased to be supporting ENERGY STAR Canada award recipients on our path to achieve a low-carbon future.

Through the ENERGY STAR Canada Awards, the ENERGY STAR Canada program recognizes contributions made by outstanding program participants in advancing energy efficiency nationwide. Each year, this event honours and celebrates energy efficiency leaders who raise the bar on efficiency efforts.

Today, Michael Vandergrift, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada, on behalf of the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, announced the winners of the 2024 ENERGY STAR Canada Awards and congratulated them for their remarkable contributions in promoting the most energy-efficient products, homes and buildings — enabling Canadians to reduce their energy consumption and take action on climate change.

Since 2001, ENERGY STAR Canada has been instrumental in promoting and inspiring energy-efficient practices across the country. By certifying and promoting products, homes and buildings, ENERGY STAR program participants empower Canadians to make informed decisions that help them save money, reduce emissions and move us toward a net-zero emissions future. In 2023 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.
