Turning Investments into Successful Outcomes

Helen Platis

Nov 24, 2017

Across Canada, communities account for 60% of our energy usage and over half of our greenhouse gas emissions. Energy costs remain an increasing burden for communities. This combination represents an ideal starting point for local governments, utilities, energy service providers, and the buildings sector, to begin actively responding to commitments for greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions, while also realizing substantial economic and social benefits. These benefits include cost savings, employment, economic development and healthier communities.

For almost a decade, QUEST has been focusing on supporting our stakeholders to achieve their energy objectives through the development of Smart Energy Communities, aiming at reducing GHG emissions, lowering energy use, driving the adoption of clean technologies, and strengthening local economies and job creation in Canada.
