Who administers the energy evaluation service?

The energy efficiency evaluation protocols and procedures were developed by NRCan with support from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and other agencies.    NRCan sets the standards for implementation and authorizes various service organizations across Canada to provide the energy efficiency evaluation service according to these standards.  These service organizations train energy advisors, administer the service according to established procedures, provide field supervision and collate data from the house evaluations undertaken by their energy advisors.  They provide this data to NRCan so that the national database on energy consumption patterns and potential energy savings in the housing sector is updated.

What is a Service Organization ?

An EnerGuide Rating System (ERS) Licensed Service Organization is any organization whose role, under a contract or contribution agreement with Natural Resources Canada, is to implement and deliver the ERS service at the local or regional level.

Service organizations manage the business relationship with their personnel providing the service to builders and the public.  An ERS evaluation is performed by an “registered energy advisor” who, in the judgement of the service organization, is trained to meet the requirements for the delivery of the service.
