Projects

Energy Transition Policy Program

The objective of QUEST Canada’s Energy Transition Policy Program is to engage in a collaborative discussion with energy decision-makers to align climate and energy transition planning and policies that will facilitate sustainable community energy systems in support of a net-zero carbon (carbon neutral) economy by 2050.

NCA: Prairies Cohort

The NCA Program’s inaugural cohort, the Prairies Cohort, is currently comprised of ten participating communities from Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.

New Brunswick Smart Energy Communities Accelerator Pilot Program

The NB SECA Pilot Program successfully established a community energy planning accelerator to assist a series of New Brunswick communities and one First Nation, equipping them with the tools and knowledge to develop and implement community energy plans and understand the net economic benefit they can provide.

Accelerating Implementation of Renewable Energy for Indigenous Communities

Accelerating Implementation of Renewable Energy (AIRE) for Indigenous Communities is a three-year project designed to help rural and remote Indigenous communities reach emission reduction targets by increasing their capacity to plan and implement land-based renewable energy initiatives (solar, wind, biomass, and geo-thermal). This project supports rural, remote Indigenous communities on their pathway to net-zero.

Equitable Engagement

Equitable Engagement

The Equitable Engagement project works to incorporate Indigenous knowledge as well as equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) considerations into QUEST Canada’s capacity building-based initiatives. The aim of this project is to ensure current and future participating communities are equipped with the tools, resources, and knowledge required to engage all stakeholders on the pathway to a durable and just net-zero future.

Low Carbon Energy Innovation

Low Carbon Energy Innovation

The project will combine cutting-edge research with on-the-ground qualitative analysis to develop a research database capturing the current state of low carbon innovation in the energy sector.

Climate Resilience Program

Innovation Sandboxes

Innovation Sandboxes

The goal of the Regulatory Innovation Sandboxes project is to create foundational policy frameworks for legislated regulation innovation. The foundational frameworks can then be used by provincial, territorial and federal policymakers and regulators to create more effective policies, regulations, and programs to accelerate the transition to a low-emissions future efficiently and fairly using a multi-sectoral, collaborative process.
