Burlington Community Energy Plan

Burlington is a very progressive city and this in part is due to a very proactive City Council and involved members of our community.  Part of this forward looking council is the encorsement of the City's first community energy plan.  The plan has three main goals.


  1. The plan's first goal is to change behaviours and instill the culture of conservation. 
  2. The second goal is to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.  This especially applies to older buildings.
  3. The third goal is to focus on energy generation and security.  For example, reduce the impact of external forces like hurricanes, flooding, and other events that can cause a loss of power.

Transportation represents 30% of our energy consumption but contributes 40% to our community greenhouse gas emissions.  The City is developing its Official Plan Review and Transportation Master Plan.  This is a good time to find ways of supporting a sustainable transportation network that includes transportation, walking and cycling.  Our City will continue to be a beautiful and safe place to live.
