The National Energy Board (NEB or Board) periodically publishes assessments of Canadian energy supply, demand and markets in support of its ongoing market monitoring. One such assessment is the Board’s Energy Futures (EF) series of long-term projections. It covers all energy types, for all regions in Canada, by varying sector detail. In the EF modelling system, the macroeconomic outcomes are integral to the energy projections, particularly on the energy use side.
National Energy Board requires a macroeconomic forecast provider to assist the Board meet the following objective:
Like the previous EF Reports, in order to deliver its Energy Futures 2017 Report expected to be released in next spring, the Board will require a macroeconomic projection for its Reference Case and one alternative sensitivity case.
Heads Up Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) typically publishes a maximum of five (5) stories (of approximately 450 words) per issue; while Heads Up: Building Energy Efficiency usually publishes a maximum of 3 stories (of approximately 450 words).
To bolster editorial content, BID requires the services of a writer to supply stories on the energy efficiency achievements of the industrial, buildings, utilities and government sectors on an ongoing basis.
The stories require a Canadian angle and must be in a journalistic format meaning that they are informative, engaging and easy to read. Plain language and the use of active voice are important requirements as per Treasury Board Guidelines on Web and other public materials.
