Energy Efficiency Description:

The Community Energy Initiative (formerly Community Energy Plan - CEP) is Guelph's commitment to use and manage energy differently. Guelph's goals under the plan are to: use less energy in 25 years than they do today consume less energy per capita than comparable Canadian cities; and produce less greenhouse gas per capita than the current global average.

The initiative's priorities are to:

  • Maximize the energy and water efficiency for buildings, vehicles and industry
  • Maximize use of heat generated in electricity generation and existing industrial processes
  • Incorporate as many renewable energy sources as feasible
  • Team with the existing electricity and gas networks to avoided wasteful duplication of assets
