Event description

Description

CEKAP aims to improve data-driven decisions and the use of decision-support tools within community energy planning and local policymaking. As part of the project, 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 open with a presentation on 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. The 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. A second presentation and discussion on geo-spatial analysis will follow.


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.
