News Release

QUEST is Supporting the Government of Canada’s Generation Energy


Sep 18, 2017

Ottawa, Ontario – September 11, 2017. Today, QUEST – Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow – launched Imagining the Future of Energy Efficiency in Canadian Communities to engage energy practitioners across Canada to imagine, discuss and document the future of energy efficiency in Canadian communities.

Using QUEST’s energy mapping workshop that draws on Natural Resources Canada’s Putting Energy and Emissions on the Map exercise, workshop participants will have a chance to visualize their vision for the future of energy efficiency at the community level. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their perspectives on the policy, regulatory, governance, and financial framework that will be needed to implement energy efficiency measures in communities across Canada.

The insights and visions developed during the workshops will be shared with the Government of Canada to inform Generation Energy – a national dialogue inviting all Canadians to share their ideas and participate in defining Canada’s energy future. You can learn more about Generation Energy by reading the context paper and registering for the Generation Energy conference taking place October 10-11, 2017 at the RBC Convention Centre, Winnipeg by going  here

We are thrilled to be engaging with Canadians from across Canada to discuss what is important to them about the future of energy in their community, and the important role that Smart Energy Communities will have in getting us there , said Brent Gilmour, Executive Director, QUEST. “We look forward to sharing the visions presented during the workshops at Generation Energy, as well as at QUEST2017 – Smart Energy Communities on the Hill which is taking place November 6-8 at the Delta Hotel Ottawa City Centre”,  said Gilmour. 

To participate, join one of the following workshops taking place in September:


September 13, Toronto, Ontario (in collaboration with the Community Energy Knowledge Action Partnership)


September 20, Victoria, British Columbia (at the ICLEI Livable Cities Forum)
