Introduction

The City of Richmond is working on completing its Community Energy and Emissions Plan which sets strategies to manage energy use and reduce carbon emissions within the community for the next 25 years. Richmond’s goal is to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 33% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 based on 2007 levels.

During September 2013, the public is invited to help prioritize and suggest new actions to continue progress towards the City’s energy and climate goals. The City hosted an interactive open house, Let’s Talk Energy, at Richmond Centre on September 20 -21.

How to be involved:

At the Let's Talk Energy open house:

  • The public learned about how and where energy is used in Richmond through interactive displays. The public had a a chance to tell us which actions they think should be priorities in the City’s Community Energy and Emissions Plan; and access incentives that will help you take action at home.
  • Community partners such as the Richmond School District, BC Hydro and Fortis BC shared information about their programs including current incentive offers.
  • elementsLAB – an environment research group at the University of British Columbia – led an interactive, digital simulation that allowed participants to explore the impacts of energy-related decisions made by a community

This initiative supports Richmond City Council’s commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as identified in the City’s Official Community Plan and Sustainability Framework.

Feedback

Please take your time to provide your feedback below on the City’s priority actions in the Community Energy and Emissions Plan. All feedback will be considered in a report to Council later this year. Participants at the open house or online can enter for a chance to win a composter, rain barrel or aquatic centre passes. Please complete this by Friday, October 4, 2013.

    Community Energy and Emissions Plan

    Meeting the City’s greenhouse gas reductions target requires us to make choices about how we approach the issue of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in a growing community. The strategies and actions below can all be pursued, but we want your help in deciding which actions are the most important in the following four areas: 

    • buildings,
    • transportation,
    • economy and 
    • infrastructure.
