Edmonton's Community Energy Transition Strategy is a risk management strategy designed to make Edmonton an energy sustainable city. This includes actions that will:
- Reduce Edmonton's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to levels consistent with limiting the long-term rise in the average global temperature to 2 degrees Celsius
- Increase energy efficiency and energy conservation in all sectors
- Ensure Edmonton's energy delivery systems (for electricity and natural gas) are resilient to shocks and disturbances from climate change
- Position Edmonton to participate in what is possibly one of the greatest economic opportunities in history
An energy sustainable city is one that meets the criteria above.
The following reports have been commissioned by the City of Edmonton to assist in the development of Edmonton's Energy Transition Strategy.
