    Demand-side Management Helping Ontario Businesses Save

    Companies across Ontario are making the most of Demand-Side Management (DSM) initiatives to help better their bottom lines and lower energy consumption. In fact, since DSM was introduced in the 1990s, industrial and commercial energy consumers across Ontario have saved an estimated 16.3 billion cubic metres of natural gas, equating to the energy consumption of more than five million homes, or removing 5.7 million cars from the roads each year. Savings on costs and energy consumed makes DSM an integral part of why natural gas continues to be affordable for companies of all sizes.

    One transportation fuel, two benefits

    The cost of filling up at the pump is a topic of conversation for just about every Ontarian driver. Rising gasoline prices can make drivers re-consider getting behind the wheel. But since that’s not really an option for many, it’s worth noting one solution that involves natural gas. Plentiful supplies of natural gas have made the fuel much more affordable–in fact, the most affordable it has been in 10 years. In light of this, some industries that are considering a switch away from traditional fuels, are finding great possibilities by looking to natural gas as an alternative. The transportation sector, for instance, stands to save between 30% and 50% in fuel costs by converting their fleets to run on natural gas. An added benefit is cleaner air: natural gas-powered vehicles produce up to 25% less greenhouse gas emissions vs. gasoline and diesel. And considering the sheer volume of transport trucks on the road, Ontario’s air stands to benefit a great deal.

    With businesses saving money, and the potential to be gentler on our environment, the future seems bright for natural gas-powered transportation. Click the link below for an article in the National Post that explores the subject.
