In 2016, we launched the GTI Pilot Communities Initiative in partnership with the City of Campbell River, British Columbia, the City of Calgary, Alberta, and the Region of Waterloo, Ontario.
The GTI Pilot Communities Initiative set out to apply the Community Energy Implementation Framework in three communities across Canada and to upgrade the Framework with new insights and advice. The GTI Pilot Communities initiative focused on testing ideas related to:
- Building staff and financial capacity
- Fostering political, stakeholder and staff support for implementation
- Embedding energy into local plans, policies and processes
