Energy & Sustainability Framework

City Council voted unanimously for Regina to join the growing number of municipalities around the world and commit to becoming a 100 per cent renewable city by 2050.

The City’s goal is to achieve net zero carbon emissions and sourcing net zero energy from renewable sources by 2050. The primary focus is on climate change mitigation through a three-pronged approach:

  1. Reduce energy consumption
  2. Improve energy usage/efficiency
  3. Switch to renewable or low carbon energy sources

The Energy & Sustainability Framework will outline the guiding principles, community and municipal-wide action plans, timelines and targets necessary to achieve this goal, focusing on the

City Council voted unanimously for Regina to join the growing number of municipalities around the world and commit to becoming a 100 per cent renewable city by 2050.

The City’s goal is to achieve net zero carbon emissions and sourcing net zero energy from renewable sources by 2050. The primary focus is on climate change mitigation through a three-pronged approach:

  1. Reduce energy consumption
  2. Improve energy usage/efficiency
  3. Switch to renewable or low carbon energy sources

The Energy & Sustainability Framework will outline the guiding principles, community and municipal-wide action plans, timelines and targets necessary to achieve this goal, focusing on the community’s economic, social and environmental health collectively. City Administration have committed to providing this Framework for City Council’s consideration by end of 2021.

Community engagement is a very important part of developing the Framework. The City is committed to being informed by impacted stakeholders and the community at large to develop policies and action plans, and to ensuring the Framework builds on work that is already being done throughout Regina. This will include initiatives and methodology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero and create greater reliance on renewable sources of energy.

A key component of the City’s public engagement is the creation of a Community Advisory Group. The Group will represent multiple sectors within Regina and give input on the guiding policy principles of the framework as well as feedback on analysis, alternatives and proposed actions. It will be made up of representatives from non-profit organizations, business, industry and community groups.

The City has contracted Sustainability Solutions Group to assist in creation of the Framework, which involves completing an energy use and emissions inventory, establishing energy and emissions reduction targets, and producing scenarios that model policy choices and actions from now until 2050. There will be opportunity for public feedback on this work. Read the NewsFeed below for updates as work continues.

    In 2018, City Council voted unanimously for Regina to join the growing number of communities around the world that are committing to drastically decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. Regina’s commitment is to become a 100% renewable energy city by 2050.

    The City will accomplish this through a three-pronged approach:

    1. Reduce energy consumption
    2. Improve energy usage and efficiency
    3. Switch to renewable or low carbon energy sources

    The Energy & Sustainability Framework will outline the guiding principles, community, and municipal-wide action plans, timelines, and targets necessary to achieve this goal, focusing on the community’s economic, social, and environmental health collectively.
