About the Agency

The Government of Nova Scotia is committed to having one of the cleanest and most sustainable environments in the world by 2020.

As government’s agency for energy efficiency, Conserve Nova Scotia will help reach this goal by providing Nova Scotians with practical, affordable and meaningful ways to make energy efficiency a part of their lives.

Through our many programs, social marketing and information campaigns, we are encouraging all Nova Scotians to make better energy choices every day, at home, at work and on the road.

Conserve Nova Scotia is responsible for the planning, development, and co-ordination of policies and programs for energy efficiency and conservation, including public education and behavioural change.

We serve as a focal point for all forms of energy efficiency and conservation measures through partnerships with federal, provincial, municipal, private sector and not-for-profit agencies.


The vision of Conserve Nova Scotia is to create a culture of energy efficiency and conservation among Nova Scotians.


Conserve Nova Scotia’s mission is to provide practical, meaningful, and affordable solutions that help Nova Scotians:

  • make better energy choices,
  • use energy more efficiently,
  • reduce energy consumption, and
  • reduce the effects of Nova Scotia’s collective energy use on the environment and its climate.
