Changing market conditions, deregulation, and a growing focus on cutting greenhouse gas emissions have made the Canadian energy market complex and volatile. Supply and cost uncertainty is a major challenge for healthcare facilities trying to forecast and manage their budgets. Many organizations use HealthPRO’s energy market expertise to handle their energy contracts.
We currently manage gas supply contracts totaling 6.5 million gigajoules per annum for 200 healthcare facilities in Ontario and Nova Scotia. Our electricity supply contracts, negotiated for over120 facilities in Ontario and Alberta, total 600 million kilowatt hours a year.
