(Halifax, N.S.) – Five winners were awarded Efficiency Nova Scotia’s Bright Business awards today. Streamline Engineering Services, based in Cornwallis, took home the Partnership award (view video).
The Partnership award recognizes the outstanding delivery of energy efficiency services, solutions or education by an Efficiency Nova Scotia partner or Efficiency Trade Network member. There are over 150 members throughout the province.
For the last five years, Streamline Engineering Services has been specializing in energy assessments for businesses and manufacturers, identifying energy saving opportunities that help reduce operating costs and their carbon footprint.
“Many of the companies that I’m working with are not in a position to make huge capital investments with long-term paybacks,” says David McClelland, owner of Streamline Engineering Services. “However, they are looking for ways to save energy, reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and help the environment.”
Focusing on compressed air leaks and upgrading to more efficient air compressors, McClelland is helping companies find 50-60 per cent energy savings for these systems, with payback periods typically around one to two years.
“We’re very grateful to have partners like Streamline Engineering Services help companies reach their environmental goals without breaking the bank,” says Monica MacLean, spokesperson for Efficiency Nova Scotia. “David’s expertise and entrepreneurial spirit is part of the reason why this industry is thriving in our province.”
Award winners were announced during the fifth annual Bright Business Conference at the World Trade and Convention Center in Halifax on Wednesday, October 19th. Speakers included the President and CEO of the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance, Elizabeth McDonald, and Nova Scotia’s Energy Minister, Michel Samson.
