New business North America

CANADA— Harris-Decima and Ipsos-Reid have been awarded government contracts to investigate public perceptions of green energy issues.

According to CTV News, one of the polls (worth $175,000 ) “seeks a clear and current understanding of public opinion on a range of issues related to energy policy in Canada”.

The second study, worth $65,000, will track awareness of the Energy Star symbol, a sticker attached to household appliances that have been tested for energy efficiency.

Neither firm had returned calls to comment on the contracts at the time of publication.
