Located in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Quebec, the Patriotes School Board Energy Conservation Project (CSP) is publicly listed on the CSA CleanProjects Registry and has been 3rd party verified under ISO-14064-2 by Carbon Quantum Inc. The project falls under the category of ‘‘energy efficiency’’ and "conservation" and is characterized as a grouped project with various project activities implemented at different locations.

GHG emission reductions result from lower energy consumption. The various set of energy efficiency measures implemented at each building reduces emissions associated with the use of any type of energy compared to the baseline scenario by reducing total energy use. In particular, GHG emissions related to the combustion of natural gas are being reduced thanks to more efficient boilers, advanced control system and other energy conservation measures.

Carbon offset proceeds resulting from the project will be reinvested by the school board into additional greenhouse emission reduction projects and climate change related education and programs.

Project Type

Verified Emissions Reductions are achieved from each project through verification and validation that is specific to each project that mitigates climate change.
