To help achieve these objectives and reduce GHG emissions from our buildings, Énergir has listed five of its business offices in the Energy Challenge. Two of the registered buildings were among the finalists in fall 2020, the Rouyn-Noranda and Mauricie buildings:
- The building in Rouyn was built in 2012 according to LEED certification, the best energy standards. Énergir rigorously maintains it to keep the energy-efficient investments in place.
- The Saint-Maurice building was built in the early 1980s, but since then Énergir has carried out several refurbishments. The boiler was replaced in 2017 and the common areas were redone to include EnergyStar appliances. Work on the facade is also planned over the next few years to reduce energy losses.
