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; and
- Position Edmonton to participate in what is possibly one of the greatest economic opportunities in history.
