Class 2-4 Trucks Landscape in Canada
- CEA researched how many medium duty vehicles (F250-F450 and equivalents) are registered across Canada, how many are used for what kinds of businesses, and where the opportunities are to reduce emissions in this sector.
- The fleets in this sector are focused on electrification to deliver emissions reductions. We engaged with the vehicle registration entity in each province and obtained registration data for key provinces.
- The report identifies specific opportunities for Natural Resources Canada to support emissions reduction and hints at local government opportunities as well.
Climate Action Planner Demo
In this video we introduce you to the Climate Action Planner. This interactive tool is for BC local governments to explore community-wide climate actions. It creates draft energy & emissions inventories for any local government or Islands Trust Area in BC, and allows you to conduct simplified modelling to see the effectiveness of implementing actions to meet GHG reduction targets (for detailed modeling, please contact CEA). Local government staff, elected officials and other stakeholders can use this tool to better understand what their community’s emissions are, and which actions will be most effective in reducing emissions and meeting targets. Actions are further explained in the Climate Leaders Playbook - https://bcclimateleaders.ca/.Download Video
CEA's New Climate Action Planner Tool
In this webinar, CEA demonstrates its interactive Climate Action Planner tool, https://www.communityenergy.ca/climate-action-planner/. This tool allows a user to create a draft energy & emissions inventory for any local government or Islands Trust Area in BC, and conduct simplified modelling to see the effectiveness of implementing actions to meet GHG reduction targets. This webinar also demonstrates how it should be used in conjunction with the Climate Leaders Playbook (“the Playbook”), https://bcclimateleaders.ca/, and how it relates to the FCM-ICLEI Partners for Climate Protection milestones.Download Video

Closing The Loop - Energy and Resource Recovery in Local Government Infrastructure
“Closing the Loop” places Integrated Resource Recovery into a broader approach we are calling “regenerative infrastructure”. The approach, and its name, is inspired by the concept of regenerative design, which mimics nature’s processes. In nature, there is no waste, as all resources cycle through closed loop systems and serve a purpose.View / Download File
