Our Smart Energy Impact
September 2020 Update
QUEST is a national non-government organization that works to accelerate the adoption of efficient and integrated community-scale energy systems in Canada by informing, inspiring, and connecting decision-makers. QUEST undertakes research, communicates best practices, convenes government, utility, private-sector and community leaders, and works directly with local authorities to implement on-the-ground solutions.
As a non-profit, we could not do this important work without the support of you – our network! We hope you will consider getting involved so that we can continue to accelerate Smart Energy Communities together.
