Today, Parliamentary Secretary Kelly Block, on behalf of the Honourable Greg Rickford, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources and Minister for the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario, recognized the winners of the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) leadership awards which were announced at Energy Summit 2014. The awards showcase the outstanding achievements of CIPEC member companies that have distinguished themselves through their work to improve energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve productivity through responsible energy use.

The awards recognize ten recipients in six categories:

--  Corporate Stewardship: 3M Canada Company and Chrysler Canada Inc. 
--  Process and Technology Improvement: EBI Energie Inc. - Depot Rive-Nord
    and Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC 
--  Energy Performance Management: New Gold Inc. (New Afton Mine) 
--  Employee Awareness and Training: KI Pembroke LP 
--  Integrated Energy Efficiency Strategy: PepsiCo Foods Canada and,
    Barrick-Hemlo 
--  Future Leaders Award: Antony Hilliard and Andre Pelletier. 

The Government of Canada works in partnership with over 50 industry sectors through the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) to reduce costs and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in the industrial sector. Supported by the Government of Canada's ecoENERGY Efficiency Initiative, this partnership continues to be a focal point for industry's response to saving energy, boosting competitiveness and supporting Canada's efforts to promote responsible energy use.

Quick Facts

--  Between 1990 and 2011, more than 5 400 facilities working with the
    Government of Canada have reduced their combined energy intensity by
    10.4 percent. 
--  Improved energy efficiency enabled Canadian industry to avoid
    approximately $5.1 billion in purchased energy in 2011 - enough energy
    to heat almost 6 million Canadian households for one year. 
--  More than 2400 industrial facilities have signed on as CIPEC Leaders
    since 1975.

Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
