Alberta Indigenous Community Energy Program (AICEP)

Last updated: 18 March 2019
The Alberta Indigenous Community Energy Program (AICEP) is a pilot program that provides tools and funding to help Indigenous communities understand how energy is used in their buildings and identify opportunities to save energy and financial resources.
A detailed energy assessment will support community decision making, estimate energy savings, and greenhouse gas reductions if building retrofits are completed in the future. This baseline analysis prior to completing energy efficiency retrofits has many benefits, including:
Accurately assessing the efficiency of existing buildings
Making informed decisions on building retrofits
Assessing potential energy and cost savings if retrofits are completed
Helping Indigenous communities maintain and improve building performance and operations.
First Nation communities, Metis Settlements, and the Aseniwuche Winewak Nation
Building Assessments must be completed on community-owned buildings within the community
Applicants must be in compliance with the terms and conditions of any previous Indigenous Relations funding
Applicant communities must be located in the Province of Alberta.
