Edmonton's Energy Transition 

Discussion Paper - June 2012

The work completed for this discussion paper, and the work of many other municipalities around the world, shows there are definite benefits to undertaking an energy transition and that a significant energy transition is indeed possible. A reduced reliance on fossil fuels can make a community more resilient, sustainable, affordable, economically successful, healthy and vibrant.

The recommendations provided for the City of Edmonton’s Energy Transition Plan have been pulled from global best practices and have been selected for their practicality and combined economic, social and environmental benefits.
