City of Guelph Community Energy Initiative

Last updated: 5 November 2017
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
