Energy Efficiency Choices

A citizens' discussion on Alberta's energy efficiency policies and programs

November, 2013

About the project

The Alberta government is currently researching energy efficiency programs that it could potentially offer within the province. The government’s 2013 budget included their desire to “Build initiatives to make Alberta the national leader in energy efficiency and sustainability.”

The Energy Efficiency Choices project is working to:

        • Hear citizens’ feedback on the available approaches and tools for increasing energy efficiency in Alberta
        • Increase citizen understanding about the benefits of energy efficiency: both in reducing costs, and in addressing environmental impacts including climate change
        • Communicate to the Alberta government — and hear back from them — about participants’ energy efficiency recommendations

Citizen participation

From a brief survey of interested people, four hundred participants from across Alberta will be selected to join in the discussion.

Participants will take part in a two-hour discussion session that will take place between November 5 and 13, 2013 on a weeknight or weekend day or evening. The discussion will use an innovative phone-based conference call technology to meet as a large group and in small discussion groups as well.

The discussion will be followed by another brief survey. The results of the discussion will be summarized and circulated to participants for review. The participants' comments will help shape the final report.

The final report will be shared with the provincial government, energy industry representatives, energy efficiency advocates and the media. It will also be available to the public here at the Alberta Energy Efficiency Alliance website and for sharing with the participants’ networks.

Find out more about the project.

Becoming the National Leader in Energy Efficiency

February 7, 2013

As the Government of Alberta works to "create an initiative to make Alberta the national leader in energy efficiency and sustainability," the Alberta Energy Efficiency Alliance brought together leaders in the field to discuss opportunities for reaching this goal.

Event Presentations:

Making Alberta The "National Leader In Energy Efficiency"

February 8, 2012

Leaders in the field discussed the best strategy to achieve the mandate of Alberta's new Premier, "design and implement an initiative that would make Alberta the national leader in energy efficiency and sustainability." 

Output from the event included input into a discussion paper, later presented to relevant government ministries with suggestions on how they can make Alberta the national leader in energy efficiency.  

Alberta's Premier Energy Efficiency Event

November 4, 2010

Alberta’s 2010 premier energy efficiency event. The conference raised the profile of energy efficiency opportunities, profiled specific projects, encouraged knowledge and contact sharing regarding EE activities within the province (and select activities outside of the province) and helped raise the excitement level of EE opportunities in Alberta, fostering the likelihood of people collaborating and taking action after the conference.

The AEEA Conference Report summarizes the ideas shared.
