As part of an effort to promote an awareness of energy consumption and the use of energy-efficient products, Natural Resources Canada, with the help of the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, will launch its own Energy Star program.

The Energy Star High-Efficiency Program in Canada is hoped to make a dent in the $75 billion spent annually on energy used to heat and cool facilities, and to operate appliances and vehicles.

"Our energy-intensive economy, relatively small population base and cold winter climate all point to the need for Canada to be an international energy-efficiency leader," noted Neil MacLeod, the office of energy efficiency director for Natural Resources Canada.

Since its inception in the U.S. in 1992, Energy Star-labeled products have reportedly saved 864 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions, the equivalent of taking 10 million cars off the road.
