Energy Managers

Through the new Energy Manager Initiative, facilities can gain access to experienced Energy Managers on a full-time basis. Energy Managers can help your facility develop an energy management strategy, identify and implement energy efficiency projects, and facilitate the Industrial Accelerator incentives application process.

Available Incentives

  • The Energy Manager must be an incremental full-time resource dedicated to energy management. It is recommended that the Energy Manager be professionally designated as well.
  • The customer will receive an upfront payment of $50,000 with available incentives up to a total of $200,000 based on performance.
  • On an annual basis, each Energy Manager will need to provide documentation of savings achieved and the total incentive will be calculated as the product of the savings multiplied by $40/MWh to a maximum of $200,000. The term of the contract is a minimum of two years, which is renewable up to a maximum of 5 years.

How to Participate

All Industrial Accelerator projects must be approved by the IESO before implementation. Additional information on application and participation requirements can be found in the Program Documents below. For more information on the Energy Manager initiative, please contact an IESO Business Manager at
