Vancouver, British Columbia, 17-December-2010 – Energy Advantage Inc., a leading North American energy and sustainability management provider, has been selected as a pre-qualified supplier of utility data management services for British Columbia’s public sector and local governments.

The Ministry of Citizens’ Services, on behalf of British Columbia’s public sector, sought utility data management service providers to support the British Columbia government’s on-going commitment to carbon neutrality, and provide public sector organizations and local governments with proper resources to strengthen their energy management capabilities and meet their carbon neutrality commitments.

As a pre-qualified supplier, Energy Advantage will help public sector organizations and local governments establish and manage a comprehensive energy and environmental data foundation. Energy Advantage will support these organizations through its web-based energy portal, which will track, analyze and measure cost, consumption and emission data.

“Energy Advantage’s data management solution will assist Energy Managers within public sector organizations to establish a cost effective data foundation across their organization’s properties and will provide analysis of their organization’s energy use to help them make better decisions to reduce their energy use and environmental impact,” says Luke Ferdinands, Regional Director, Western Canada, Energy Advantage. “Energy Managers will be able to use our customized on-line energy portal to better understand their facilities’ energy use, and from that, to reduce their energy consumption and emissions. In addition, Energy Advantage’s solution allows for simplified reporting to SmartTool – a key step in public sector carbon emission reporting.”
