There is a lot of great work going on in energy efficiency in Canada, so how do we accelerate the implementation of energy efficiency projects? We will discuss some successful projects in this space, the idea of an enabling environment as a way to support project development, and a new initiative by the Indigenous Clean Energy Social Enterprise called Bringing it Home, aimed at accelerating energy efficiency projects in Indigenous communities.

There is a lot of great work going on in energy efficiency in Canada. How can we accelerate the implementation of energy efficiency projects in Indigenous communities?
This CoLab will focus on three discussion points:
Improving the quality of homes and facilities is a core interest for many Indigenous communities. Safe, durable, culturally appropriate homes and facilities are essential to the well-being of community members. Energy efficiency can provide a means for achieving those characteristics while reducing the financial burden faced by communities and their members. The challenges faced by communities looking to act on these issues are significant, and often amplified in rural and remote Indigenous communities. Yet, great successes have been had by some Indigenous communities when it comes to improving the quality of their homes and facilities. More collaboration is needed to learn from these promising practices so we can scale up action on energy efficiency. By working together, we can collectively share and develop effective approaches for solving the significant challenges faced by Indigenous communities.
This CoLab will highlight successful Indigenous energy efficiency projects and emphasize the need for more collaboration to accelerate project implementation. The Advancing Energy Efficiency CoLab will present and seek input on Bringing It Home – a national initiative to identify and put into practice the models needed to scale up community-wide energy efficiency projects. Opportunities to get involved in Bringing It Home will be provided.
Anyone can attend this webinar free-of-charge; however, registration is required:
