June Project Update
In the past few weeks, we have celebrated two specific project milestones toward the development of Regina’s Energy & Sustainability Framework (ESF):
- The Community Advisory Group held its first workshop on June 3. During this session, Group members heard an overview of the project’s timeline and their role and met the City’s consulting partners at Sustainability Solutions Group to better understand the work they will be doing.
- The project team finished collecting all the data necessary (more than 70 data sets over six years) for creating the energy consumption and emissions inventory for Regina, both the community and municipal corporation.
Team members have also been attending the Regina Farmers Market where we are spreading awareness of the Energy & Sustainability Framework. You can find us there most Wednesdays and Saturdays, so stop by to get some information, ask some questions, or just to say hi!
The next Community Advisory Group workshop will be July 6. This workshop will focus on discussing energy and emissions reduction opportunities and target setting.
In July, the project team will get the first look at the completed Energy & Emissions Inventory. The inventory will be used to create a ‘business as usual’ model. That model shows what Regina’s energy use and GHG emissions will look like from now until 2050 in the absence of the Framework.
