360 energy history
It all started in 1995. 360 Energy encouraged and lobbied reluctant utilities for access to hourly energy data. From that experience, we learned how to deploy a unique and groundbreaking combination of data mining, education, coaching, and procurement strategies to benefit energy consuming companies. We’ve since earned our place as a trusted energy advisor and energy efficiency implementor.
- In 2004, we brought Strategic Energy Planning management into the Canadian market.
- In 2007, we introduced the Energy Coach, a comprehensive employee engagement and training program. The program helps embed a corporate culture that values energy productivity and continual improvement.
- In 2008, we pioneered the Certification of Energy Excellence (CEE) program to recognize organizations that demonstrate best-in-class, measurable energy management over a 3-year period.
- In 2011, one of 360 Energy’s clients was the first ISO 50001 certified organizations in North America.
In 2020, we launched our Carbon Coach and Carbon Excellence Programs, a comprehensive suite of products helping companies profitably transition to the low-carbon economy.
In 2021, we began our podcast, The 360 on Energy and Carbon, to stimulate conversation on energy and carbon strategies.
360 Energy is an industry thought leader. We contribute to many national publications, trade magazines and conferences, participate in academic research, and provide policy advice to governments and advocacy associations.
Our goal is to be part of the solution. We want thousands of new organizations to become centres of excellence in energy and carbon management by 2030.
