The idea to create Energy Exchange came as a result of an energy literacy project supported by 13 organizations in Canada and managed by Pollution Probe, a Canadian registered charitable organization dedicated to achieving positive and tangible environmental change.

The Energy Exchange identity was designed to establish a profile for the organization and facilitate the process of soliciting and obtaining the $12 million in investment funding from private and public contributions and grants.

Energy Exchange will own and manage the Canada Centre for Energy Learning (CCEL) an entity that will complement and collaborate with existing energy literacy initiatives and support national dialogue on Canada’s energy future.
