District Energy Considerations in COVID-19 Recovery

District energy stands ready to support the dual objective of reinvigorating Canada’s Post COVID-19 economy and at the same time reduce Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. The following ideas would help the energy industry while at the same time increase Canada’s ambition on climate change action:

\

Streamline Federal Government announcements of projects approved by the Canada
Infrastructure Bank.

\

Encourage the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) to quickly disburse the $1 billion
allocated to it in Budget 2019, with district energy as an ‘in-scope’ project type.

\

Accelerate calls for projects under the Climate Action Incentive Fund (CAIF) stream of the
federal carbon pricing re-investment system, fast-track review of applications and expand
eligibility under the program (i.e. increase funding cap per project).

\

Accelerate the commitment to launch four long-term funds to help attract private capital that
can be used for deep retrofits of large buildings such as office towers.federal carbon pricing re-investment system, fast-track review of applications and expand
eligibility under the program (i.e. increase funding cap per project).

\

Include district energy as an eligible investment under the proceeds reinvestment of the Output-
Based Pricing System.

\

Recapitalize low carbon energy programs under Natural Resources Canada.Based Pricing System.

\

Recapitalize the Low-Carbon Economy Fund’s Leadership and Champion streams.
