Resilient Pipes & Wires
Key Objectives of the Project
The objectives of the Resilient Pipes and Wires initiative were to:
- Assess the level of climate adaptation awareness and measures within the Canadian energy distribution sector
- Document the state and scope of climate adaptation awareness and measures
- Identify issues associated with these measures
- Outline the drivers and barriers for taking measures
- Identify the policies relevant to climate adaptation measures in the Canadian energy distribution sector
- Document how these policies were acting as drivers or barriers
- Recommend measures to address barriers and leverage drivers

Empowering Canadian Communities
QUEST Canada develops and implements programs and projects with the aim to nurture strategic partnerships, facilitate connections, empower community champions, and influence decisions makers, supporting communities across Canada on their pathway to net-zero.

Communities in Canada are increasingly developing local, low-carbon energy projects, but many face road-blocks with regards to financing. Simultaneously, Canadian investors are seeking low-carbon investments, but are challenged to find local opportunities at scale for investment. The Enabling Low Carbon Energy Projects for Investment (ELCEPI) research project aims to offer recommendations and solutions to close these financing gaps, while connecting the barriers and enablers for investment to larger socio-economic issues.
The NB SECA Pilot Program successfully established a community energy planning accelerator to assist a series of New Brunswick communities and one First Nation, equipping them with the tools and knowledge to develop and implement community energy plans and understand the net economic benefit they can provide.
Accelerating Implementation of Renewable Energy (AIRE) for Indigenous Communities is a three-year project designed to help rural and remote Indigenous communities reach emission reduction targets by increasing their capacity to plan and implement land-based renewable energy initiatives (solar, wind, biomass, and geo-thermal). This project supports rural, remote Indigenous communities on their pathway to net-zero.
