Nova Scotia Municipal Energy Learning

Working Group
Launched in 2016, the Municipal Energy Learning Group (MELG) is a resource for municipalities engaged in community energy planning, partnership-building, and Smart Energy projects to share their experiences, lessons learned, and transfer knowledge about best practices. MELG participants are leaders in moving toward achieving provincial GHG emissions reduction goals and transitioning toward Smart Energy Communities. Participation is exclusive to QUEST Subscribers.
N

OBJECTIVES IN 2018

W
Identification of gaps where knowledge sharing can help municipalities reduce their energy use and GHG emissions
W
Peer-to-peer knowledge transfer and best practice sessions, led by a facilitator
W
Share the findings of the MELG with interested municipalities
The tides are changing in Nova Scotia’s energy system and the Smart Energy marketplace will be an area to watch. With the recent announcements introducing a provincial cap-and-trade system, a new equivalency agreement to reflect the accelerated coal phase-out at the federal level and the Pan-Canadian Framework on Climate Change and Clean Growth, the framework in which Smart Energy Communities are set could be radically changed.

Communities account for 58% of energy use and 54% of all GHG emissions in Atlantic Canada. In order for Nova Scotia to meet its GHG and energy objectives, continued coordinated action at the municipal level is essential and will be directly advanced by the MELG.
