What is Energy Evolution?
Energy Evolution is the City’s community energy transition strategy. It sets out what it will take to achieve the City’s target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100 per cent by 2050. Energy Evolution is a community-wide initiative with a vision to transform Ottawa into a thriving city powered by clean, renewable energy.
To achieve this vision, residents, businesses, organizations and governments need to transition away from a dependence on fossil fuels by:
- Reducing energy usage through conservation and efficiency
- Increasing the supply of renewable energy through local and regional production
- Prioritizing the procurement of clean and renewable energy
