Quebec based Ecosystem were the energy efficiency and sustainability partners with Lakeridge Health which was named the Green Hospital of the Year on November 4 in Toronto. The award was selected from 90 submissions and given by the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) and the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care (CCGHC). Lakeridge Health is located in the Durham Region of southern Ontario east of Toronto. It implemented energy retrofits at its four hospital sites, including adding solar photovoltaics, LED lighting and the conversion of several steam heating systems to hot water. The retrofits generate annual savings of over $1.3 million.

Elementa Group, an energy-from-waste company based in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario has won a 2013 Defense Energy Technology Challenge/Utility Technology Challenge Award. Together with their U.S. partner Battelle, Elementa was presented the award at the US Defense Energy Summit on November 11-13 in Austin, Texas.

It does not generate noxious oxides and can be used to generate electricity or produce hydrogen and a variety of liquid fuels.
