Imagine a neighbourhood that can save, generate and share energy

Community Energy includes local efforts to manage how we use energy and where our energy comes from. It refers to multiple energy sources and distribution networks that are shared between various members of a geographic neighborhood, with at least part of the energy generated in the local area. This means some degree of local involvement in the management and control of the system, with sharing of responsibilities, benefits (including revenue) and impacts among the community.

How Do We Use Energy?

Individuals have a significant influence on energy conservation. People’s awareness, understanding, and actions on energy conservation can dramatically change their energy consumption. For example, behaviour change can include switching to more efficient light bulbs and Energy Star appliances in your home, putting on a sweater instead of turning up the heat, or retrofitting your house to improve its insulation.
