Town of Aurora Community Energy Plan

ICLEI-Canada and LURA Consulting are currently working with the Town of Aurora to develop a Community Energy Plan (CEP). A strong community and stakeholder engagement component will inform the plan throughout the planning process and guide the development of achieveable and ambitious energy management strategies. The project will include modelling of business-as-usual projections for the community’s energy consumption and emissions from the baseline year to 2050. GIS spatial analysis and mapping will detail energy and emission intensity for the whole community, allowing strategies to target both specific sectors and geographical areas. A baseline GHG emissions inventory that satisfies the requirements of the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) Protocol and the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GPC) will also be produced. The actions outlined in the CEP will align with the Town’s Corporate Energy Management Plan and its Corporate Environmental Action Plan, as well as meet the requirements of Milestones 1-3 for community climate planning with the PCP Program.
