Energy Savings for Business Program: An Overview of Motor and Drive Measures


We hosted a webinar at 2 p.m. on Feb. 16, 2021. The Energy Savings for Business (ESB) Support team provided an overview of the motor measures, including:

  • Eligible motor technologies
  • Measure requirements
  • The application for motor measures

ERA’s new ESB Program—a funding opportunity to support small- and medium-scale industrial and commercial businesses—is awarding up to $55 million for cost-saving and emissions-reducing projects. The program will help Alberta businesses reduce emissions, decrease operating costs, grow their operations and become more competitive, while creating skilled jobs and boosting economic recovery.

The focus of the program is to increase the adoption of targeted commercially available energy saving technologies. The program is open to all industries and business types across Alberta except for Large Emitters as defined under the TIER Regulation, new construction, federal and provincially-owned buildings, and the institutional sector (municipalities, universities, schools and hospitals).
