QUEST and Pollution Probe have just launched the Smart Energy Communities Scorecard (Scorecard), a national initiative to develop a standardized approach for evaluating and benchmarking the pathways to Smart Energy Communities in Canada.
The Scorecard is a national, multi-year initiative, that will be the first tool of its kind to evaluate how the policies and processes of multiple sectors, including local governments, utilities and the real estate sector, are contributing to Smart Energy Communities. It will result in a platform for evaluating and benchmarking Smart Energy Communities across Canada.
The project partners are seeking six communities across Canada to serve as pilots to contribute to the development of the Scorecard, and to test the benefits of the Scorecard.
The selected Pilot Communities will:
Receive a score, evaluating the policies and processes in the community
Receive advisory support from the project team on how to improve the community’s score
Contribute to a national, standard approach for evaluating Smart Energy Communities in Canada
Be connected to a national network of communities with leading energy data collection practices
To learn more about the Scorecard and to submit an Expression of Interest to participate in the project, please visit www.questcanada.org/scorecard.
If you have questions about the initiative, please contact Sarah Marchionda at email@example.com.
The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest is November 30th, 2017.
