Whitehorse has had an interesting history with energy planning. The City put together an energy plan in 2004, that did not emphasize economic development, and which was never implemented. The City put together another plan in 2012 that focused exclusively on financial savings (Yukon is not required to do a CEEI), which has met with significant interest and support from the City administration. The contrast between the two is very interesting and suggests, to my eye anyway, that a firm business case is fundamental to gaining support from wary administrations and economic development (including financial savings) is (and will continue to be) important to building support for energy planning and implementation in Yukon.
