Council approves Energy Evolution
On October 28, Council unanimously approved Energy Evolution, the City’s strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Work will now begin on developing and implementing the 20 projects identified in the strategy in collaboration with the community. The projects focus on the most impactful way to reduce emissions:
- Electrifying personal and commercial vehicles
- Retrofitting residential and commercial buildings
- Turning organic waste into renewable natural gas
Council has committed the $2.6 million surplus from last year’s Hydro Ottawa dividend to support the projects and help leverage federal and provincial funding.
