Joshua Lewis Speaks at the IESO Auto Industry Energy Efficiency Roundtable

SNP Technical Services is proud to report that Joshua Lewis, our Energy Group Manager, was recently asked to be a speaker at the IESO Auto Industry Energy Efficiency Roundtable, hosted in Windsor on November 3rd, 2016.

This event marked the first time that all of the companies who assemble vehicles in Ontario (Ford, GM, FCA, Honda, and Toyota) were together in one room to discuss their energy efficiency goals, success stories, and challenges that they face.

Joshua's involvement was specifically requested for this event, as he is recognized as one of the leading authorities on energy efficiency in the automotive sector. His presentation was very well received and gave the participants renewed enthusiasm to achieve energy savings through operational changes, maintenance efforts and capital projects.

SNP Accepted as a Qualified Technical Services Provider (QTSP) for the CME Smart Green Program

SNP Technical Services is pleased to announce they have been accepted as a qualified technical services provider (QTSP) for the CME Smart Green program.

The SMART Green Program is open to small- and medium-sized manufacturers throughout Ontario and provides assistance in the form of non-repayable grants of 50% of eligible costs up to $200,000. The program will improve the competitiveness of the Ontario manufacturing supply chain by not only delivering value to the SME-eligible manufacturers, but also by contributing to Ontario’s 2020 targets for GHG emissions reduction.

The purpose of this Program is to support investments in technology and process improvements by manufacturers which result in GHG emissions intensity reductions and/or avoidance through upgrades to process/production equipment, deliver energy efficiency, and lead to productivity improvements, which in turn lead to lower GHG emissions on per production-unit basis; more specifically, where improvements will include new process and/or production equipment installation and associated costs.

Further information about the program can be found at: https://cmeweb.crm.eperformanceinc.com/smartgreen/

Contact SNP today to get your initial assessment underway.
