Energy

Ontario’s municipal governments own more infrastructure than any other level of government, and local decisions about buildings, land-use and transportation have significant impacts on how people consume energy and emit GHGs (Municipal GHG Challenge Fund, Program Guide, 2017). Energy is central to economic and social activity, essential for the generation of industrial, commercial and community growth. It also provides personal comfort and allows for the movement of people and resources from place to place. But, energy production and consumption place significant pressure on the environment through the release of GHGs, air pollution, land use choices, and the creation of waste materials.


Considerations: How is energy used in our homes, businesses and institutions? What influences the amount of energy we use? How can we use less energy? How clean is our energy and where does it come from?
