The revision of Edmonton’s Community Energy Transition Strategy is an opportunity to re-imagine our city and the energy markets we will lead

The final revised Energy Transition Plan is scheduled to be presented at Executive Committee on April 12, 2021. Visit Council and Committee Meetings for updates and scheduling.

The revised plan builds on the existing Energy Transition Strategy to limit the rise of global average temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This ambitious target aligns with Edmonton's long term vision of transitioning to a low-carbon future, outlined in ConnectEdmonton and The City Plan.

About the Revised Energy Transition Plan

Project History

Phase 1

September 2019 - July 2020

  • City Council directed administration to update the Community Energy Transition Strategy and declared a climate emergency in August 2019.
  • The City requested input from public and targeted stakeholders on the actions/solutions identified to achieve the Climate Shifts from September 2019 to May 2020. This input will inform the draft of the Strategy. 
  • An interim report providing a project update and proposed accelerated climate actions was presented to City Council in December 2019.
  • A draft of the revised Strategy will be presented to City Council in the fall of 2020.

Phase 2

August 2020 - December 2020

  • The City seeks advice from the general public and targeted stakeholders on how to implement the proposed solutions/actions in Edmonton from August to October 2020. This input will inform the final updated Strategy.
  • The final revised Strategy will be presented to City Council in early 2021.

Public Engagement

Key stakeholders were engaged to ensure that the proposed climate shifts, policies and actions capture the best practices, innovations and ideas, and that its implementation will be achievable in Edmonton. 

Engagement with targeted stakeholders and the general public were divided as per the 2 phases listed in the project timeline. The input from the various engagement sessions will help inform the updated Strategy that will be presented to City Council for approval in early 2021.
