Community Planning

Community Energy Planning helps build technical and leadership capacity within Aboriginal communities and organizations in order to:

  • Increase climate leadership knowledge.

  • Prepare Aboriginal communities for green-energy economic development, opportunities by increasing awareness of climate leadership and the low-carbon economy.

  • Increase awareness and understanding of how local actions can decrease greenhouse gas emissions.


Community Climate Planning helps Aboriginal communities establish an understanding of their energy conservation opportunities and set priorities to improve energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and drive economic development. The planning assists Aboriginal communities by:

  • Providing energy inventories;

  • Forecasting community energy use and needs;

  • Developing energy and emission reduction targets;

  • Targeting actions and timelines for implementation; and

  • Enabling greater participation in a low-carbon economy.

Green Energy Development assists Aboriginal communities and organizations acquire an ownership stake in the rapidly expanding renewable energy sector. This planning focuses on the development of commercial scale, renewable-energy projects that will lead to significant reductions in overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. 

Renewable Energy is defined by Natural Resources Canada Renewable Energy is energy obtained from natural resources that can be naturally replenished or renewed within a human lifespan, that is, the resource is a sustainable source of energy.
