Ontario’s Cap & Trade poses an enormous challenge to businesses. Some companies will be winners, some will be losers, and there will be a big group in the middle of the continuum with varying degrees of success.
The winners will be the businesses with enough vision to set real goals well beyond Cap & Trade requirements, and then monetize their carbon reductions. The key to winning – selling your company’s carbon reductions as recurring CO2 offset credits year after year after year to other businesses.The Cap & Trade losers will stand in line to buy CO2 offsets when it’s too late to do much of anything else.And the Big Group in the Middle (BGM) will do something to reduce their carbon footprint to avoid buying offsets. Some of them may just reach their target and avoid paying anything. Others may reduce what they need to pay, but will still have to pay something, ultimately costing the company more.The key to your company’s success is a new, highly-focused approach to energy management. This information-packed session will give you the vision, the strategies and the tools you need now to make sure your company is on the winning side of the Cap & Trade continuum.
The thought and action leaders of companies that are major consumers of energy:
Paul Hullar is the Founder and CEO of Brightwave Energy, Simi Valley, California, and is the author of Winning with AB32 – Generating Revenue with California’s Cap and Trade (available on Amazon). With 10 years of consulting on Cap & Trade in California, Paul understands what works and what doesn’t, who’ll win and who’ll get left behind. Paul served as an executive with Procter & Gamble for 25 years where he developed and led their Energy Conservation Program, which spanned across 134 facilities world-wide. Through a Program of Conservation and Alternative & Advanced Fuel strategies, Paul also led the program that reduced P&G’s energy consumption by 26% in less than four years, generating over $230 Million USD in savings and an Alternative & Advanced Fuel Strategies program to drive a 70% reduction in their Carbon Footprint. Paul received the Pacific Coast Business Times award "Who's Who in Clean Tech and Sustainability" for the past six years.
David Arkell is President & CEO of 360 Energy Inc. For over 20 years, Dave and 360 Energy has helped leading companies enhance performance and create robust teams through a platform of energy management. Their clients in Canada and the US have save millions of dollars by embedding energy management into day- to-day operations, procurement and financial decision-making. In 2006, 360 Energy developed the comprehensive Certification of Energy Excellence (CEE) program in collaboration with the UK’s National Energy Foundation. The CEE is an outcomes-based evaluation; it requires participants to demonstrate broad internal collaboration and a verified record of continual improvement in reducing energy consumption and costs. Their CEE client St. Mary’s Cement Bowmanville went on to become the first ISO 50001 certified operation in North America; that site’s energy savings success continues today. Dave has appeared on numerous panels with senior government officials, and at conferences and seminars including the Ontario Economic Forum. Dave is driven by a passion to help others perform better than they ever thought they could, and by the knowledge that sustained energy savings are best achieved with diverse team effort and strong executive support.

Presenter: David Arkell, 360 Energy Inc.
Energy is usually among the top three costs manufacturers face. And yet, most companies have little or no idea how much they actually spend on energy If you don’t know how much you spend, you have even less idea how much you can actually save. Energy Management is a whole organization affair, which needs to be driven from the top to fully maximize savings. It’s not just technology, it’s people and employee engagement that can drive early savings with a surprising ROI.
