Accelerating implementation of renewable energy: a protocol to guide Municipalities - AIRE series Part 4
This presentation will showcase a series of resources - compiled into a ‘protocol’ - that can increase capacity among municipalities to accelerate implementation of renewable energy. Municipal Councils are setting ambitious climate change mitigation targets, in which local renewable energy development figures prominently. To date, municipalities have played a relatively small role in energy supply planning and implementation and, as a result, have relatively little experience or resources upon which to move toward implementation. Our protocol is designed to help fill this capacity gap. It brings together information about best practices from across Canada, combined with novel concepts and techniques in spatial planning and community engagement. The protocol has been developed over a two-year project led by QUEST, and with funding from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.

Presented in partnership with the Community Energy Knowledge Action Partnership (CEKAP) and the University of Guelph.

The presenters are Kirby Calvert, Associate Professor at the University of Guelph and Rebecca Jahns, Research Associate at the University of Guelph.
