I agree with you, the focus does appear to be on district energy. I also found the section on waste diversion a little disappointing. It led me to do a little research on the web to find out where Victoria’s compost (kitchen scraps) actually end up. It looks like our kitchen scraps are being sent over to Richmond and fed into Harvest Power’s anaerobic digestion facility to produce electricity. I think it’s encouraging that the kitchen scraps are being used as a renewable energy source, but it is a little disconcerting that we have to send our organics waste over to the Lower Mainland. This process inevitably increases GHG emissions (via transportation). I understand that this is an interim solution but I think the City of Victoria needs to revisit this strategy and search for options where our kitchen scraps could be used locally as a renewable energy source.
