Energy use and greenhouse gas emissions for the Broader Public Sector

The Broader Public Sector (BPS) plays an important role in helping Ontario meet its conservation targets and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Under O. Reg. 507/18 (Broader Public Sector: Energy Reporting and Conservation and Demand Management Plans), made under the Electricity Act, 1998, BPS organizations are required to:

  1. Report annually to the Ministry of Energy, on their energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and publish the reports on their websites (as of July 1, 2013);
  2. Develop a five-year conservation and demand management plan and publish the plan on their websites. Plans must be updated every five years (as of July 1, 2014).

This data includes the annual amount of energy used and GHG emitted by BPS organizations.

BPS organizations that are required to report include municipalities, municipal service boards, school boards, universities, colleges and hospitals. Several BPS organizations also voluntarily reported on facilities that are not required by regulation.

Posted data files contain the following information:

  • raw energy consumption and GHG emission data
  • data that has been normalized to account for weather conditions and GHG emissions
  • the names of those BPS organizations that did not report their 2013-2017 energy* consumption data.

Missing or incorrect data is the sole responsibility of the BPS organization. The ministry has attempted to remove duplicate data from this data set to improve data integrity.

The Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines developed O. Reg. 507/18 to help BPS organisations better understand how and where they use energy and demonstrate government leadership by developing conservation plans to guide energy savings.

*The Ministry of Energy is aware that COVID-19 may have restricted some BPS organizations’ ability to submit their annual energy reports using the 2018 and 2019 data.
