Building Community Capacity on Local Energy: Extending the Community Energy Explorer Web-tool

(CEE) is a unique, interactive and visually compelling web-resource to build capacity of citizens, decision-makers, and local government staff on community energy and related land use issues. The objective of this 2-year project is to improve, expand and launch a public version of CEE in the Metro Vancouver region, and initiate a process to foster uptake and replication across BC. If successfully adopted by practitioners and NGOs, CEE should seed new conversations within communities, and embolden municipal staff & decision-makers, accelerating community action and decision-making for better land-use management and meet provincial energy/GHG reduction targets.
