Welcome to CIEEDAC

The Canadian Industrial Energy End-Use Data and Analysis Centre (CIEEDAC) is part of the Energy and Materials Research Group in the School of Resource and Environmental Management. We are located within the Faculty of Environment at Simon Fraser University

CIEEDAC is a non-profit organisation funded through government and industry sponsorship. It was established in 1993 through an initiative by Natural Resources Canada to develop a system of National Energy Use Database centres. After more than 20 years of providing quality industrial energy and environmental data, we are still going strong!

We are dedicated to improving the quality and accessibility of practical and unbiased information related to energy use in Canadian Industry.

 

Announcements

27 March 2017

Updated Industry Reports are available online.

CIEEDAC has updated its set of industry reports for many of Canada's major industries: Aluminium, Cement, Chemical Products, Construction, Electricity Generation, Foundries, Iron and Steel, Mining, Natural Gas, Pulp and Paper, Wood Products, and Refining. The reports now include data and analyses up to 2015.

12 January 2017

CIEEDAC has received the final release of energy consumption data in industry from Statistics Canada for 2014 and the preliminary data for 2015.

GHG emissions data are updated as well and include estimates of process emissions as they are available to CIEEDAC. Data are accessible online at our web site (here).

Statistics Canada provided GDP data, based on real $2007 for most industries, and the majority of the physical unit production data. Gross Output data are not available for this release. For industries dependent on data from the Report on Energy Supply and Demand (primarily electricity supply and construction), these data will be updated once the RESD for 2015 is released (planned for mid-January).

30 May 2016

The Canadian Renewable Energy Database has been updated.

The database now contains information on over 2100 individual renewable energy sources.

Most of the data are publicly available from numerous sources, both private and government. In this database, the data have been assembled and reviewed for consistency. The database provides access non‐confidential data on renewable energy systems operating in Canada. The query system generates reports by technology type, industry, region, and many other options.

Due to data challenges, the database does not presently account for solar thermal and earth energy systems.

15 March 2016

The Canadian Cogeneration Database has been updated.

CIEEDAC has reviewed and simplified its current dataset on cogeneration. After aligning it with CIEEDAC's other databases and evaluating the existing data set, we provide an updated, revised version of data and an associated report to those interested in Canada's energy system. The database identifies size (capacity, MWe), location and thermal host of industrial cogeneration facilities in Canada as well as commercial / institutional and district energy cogeneration systems.

Most of these data are publicly available from numerous sources, both private and government. In this database, the data have been assembled and reviewed for consistency. The query system generates reports by technology type, fuel type, industry, region, and many other options.

15 March 2016

CIEEDAC has updated its dataset on District Energy.

CIEEDAC received support from Natural Resources Canada’s CanmetENERGY to harmonize this data set with the cogeneration and renewable energy data this year. Not only were the data harmonized but more of the data have been made available through a new query interface that is aligned with that of the renewable energy and cogeneration databases. Data received from a number of new systems have been included in the dataset; at least 77 DE facilities are now included in the database.
