New Tool! BC Energy Map
An emerging tool for community renewable energy considerations. Find it here.

Community-scale energy and emissions modelling (CEEM) provides the ‘bridge’ between community-wide inventorying (e.g., CEEIs), and setting/rationalizing your community’s GHG reduction targets, as required under the Local Government Act. CEEM allows local governments to assess the impact of projected land use changes on future energy use and GHG emissions through different transportation patterns and the built environment.
