QUEST - Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow, is a collaborative network of stakeholders who are actively working to make Canada a leader in the design, development and implementation of Integrated Community Energy Solutions.
Integrated Community Energy Solutions (ICES) are all about creating smart energy communities by linking energy across land use, buildings, transportation, waste, water, and related infrastructure.
This approach to thinking about energy at the community level has been endorsed by the Council of Energy Ministers (2009), as well as by the Council of the Federation (2011).
Mobilize all levels of government, utilities, the energy industry, the real-estate sector, economic regulators, and the professional service sector to create and apply Integrated Community Energy Solutions.
By 2030, Integrated Community Energy Solutions will be the preferred way of doing development and redevelopment in communities.
