Energy Efficiency

About the Project

Canadian communities account for nearly 60 percent of energy end-use and over half of all greenhouse gas emissions across Canada. Business-as-usual scenarios forecast that the amount of energy consumed at the community level could increase by 75 percent above 2006 levels by 2050. The inefficient production, delivery, and use of energy poses significant environmental, economic, health, and social risks to communities.


Imagining the Future of Energy Efficiency in Canadian Communities aims to engage leading energy practitioners across Canada, to imagine, discuss and document an alternative future for energy efficiency in Canadian communities.


In charrette-style energy mapping workshops, drawing on Natural Resources Canada's Putting Energy and Emissions on the Map exercise, QUEST will encourage participants to discuss and visualize their vision for the future of energy efficiency at the community level.


Workshops dates and locations:

  • Fredericton, New Brunswick | August 30, 2017

  • Toronto, Ontario | September 13, 2017
