2022 Impact Report

Together, we created a lot of positive impact in 2022. We facilitated new and lasting connections, empowered community champions and influenced decision-makers to implement efficient and integrated energy systems that best meet community needs and maximize local opportunities. Most importantly, we supported communities in Canada on their pathway to net-zero.

As a non-profit, we would not be able to do this important work without our network. If you’d like to learn more about joining our network of supporters, please visit our Get Involved webpage.
