Producing hundreds of tons of chocolate each day is energy intensive. The Barry Callebaut factory in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, the largest chocolate factory in North America, recently revamped its systems to cut down on energy use while increasing productivity. The strategy: the cocoa shells that were previously a waste product are now used as a biofuel in the chocolate-making process.
Ecosystem’s energy efficiency project at Rockland Community College is achieving more than energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions – it is also serving as a live learning opportunity for students at the college.

Technological advances have the potential to drive profitability in commercial real estate (CRE) operations, and the multifamily sector is starting to make choices among a range of available solutions. But managers and owners have to build tech strategies that balance innovation against client needs and the demand for meaningful efficiency improvements.
Montreal’s Olympic Park and Trois-Rivières University (UQTR) were both recipients of awards from the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). Presented in October 2018 in conjunction with the World Energy Engineering Congress, these awards recognize excellence and innovation in energy projects. Ecosystem is proud to have contributed to these achievements.
Les Cours Mont-Royal, an upscale shopping center in downtown Montreal, turned an asset renewal project into an opportunity to improve their financial, operational, and environmental performance. Their bold approach to upgrading their infrastructure was recently recognized with an Energia award from AQME, the Quebec Association for Energy Management.
Ecosystem’s energy efficiency project at Rockland Community College (RCC) took center stage when the State University of New York (SUNY) chancellor Dr. Kristina M. Johnson made her first visit to the campus since her appointment last September.
In the drive to create effective enrollment strategies, community college administrators recognize that their facilities can be an asset in attracting and keeping students – but funding campus improvements is a challenge. An energy performance contract (EPC) may offer you just what you need in today’s competitive environment.
A team from Ecosystem’s NYC office attended a live taping of The Energy Gang podcast. One of our engineers, Matthew Sheridan, had some questions for the panel, and he discusses the experience.
It’s a great start to 2018 for the energy performance project at Quebec University Hospital Center– Laval University (CHU). The project was named top in Region II (Toronto East, Quebec, and the Maritime Provinces) by The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and was also awarded honorable mention by ASHRAE International in the Healthcare Establishments – Existing Buildings category.
