The objective of this project is to engage municipalities and developers to identify low carbon energy systems and business models and enable low-carbon new construction. The learnings from the proposed engagement will be promoted to stakeholders through a toolkit and a training program to build capacity of municipal staff in understanding the technologies and planning processes required to build low carbon communities. The applicant will achieve this by:
- Increasing the capacity of municipal climate staff to engage in discussions with developers on low carbon energy planning.
- Undertaking low carbon energy planning with municipalities and selected developers to achieve deep carbon reductions in new developments.
- Developing a Low Carbon Energy Planning Primer and Training Program for enabling net zero ready developments.
