Event description

Description

CEKAP aims to improve data-driven decisions and the use of decision-support tools within community energy planning and local policymaking. In collaboration with the QUEST Ontario Municipal Working Group, we are hosting a half-day workshop to share expertise, and seek feedback from practitioners, on community energy decision support tools

The workshop will explore three questions:

  • What analytical tools are currently available to community and corporate energy managers to make decisions about local energy initiatives and policies?
  • How have these tools been used in the decision-making process? That is, what questions are being asked and answered through these tools?
  • What are the opportunities to improve these tools for local energy advocates and decision-makers?

The workshop will include 3 presentations on different community energy planning and policy analytical tools:

  • Energy economy decision support tools - This presentation will also share a recent case study from Vancouver which demonstrates the use of analytical tools to estimate the effects of energy policy at the municipal scale
  • Geo-spatial analysis of renewable energy potentials - Energy mapping typically focuses on the demand side. This presentation will explore the use of GIS tools to evaluate energy supply potentials at the landscape scale.
  • Cost-benefit analysis tools - This presentation will share a tool developed by the City of London Ontario for evaluating community energy investment opportunities.

Each presentation will be followed by a facilitated discussion in which partners can explore their current use of analytical tools for decision making in community energy, and how they might expand this capacity in the future. This will be an in-person meeting, with an opportunity for remote participation via webinar link. Lunch will be provided for those participating in-person.
