Oakville Town Council unanimously endorsed the Oakville Energy Task Force’s Community Energy Plan on February 25, 2020. After the endorsement and through its final publication, the Community Energy Plan was renamed to the Community Energy Strategy (CES).
The CES, developed in collaboration between the Town, Sheridan College, and the Oakville Energy Task Force establishes a common community vision for innovation and collaboration to achieve a sustainable energy future, and sets 2041 community-wide goals for improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and enhancing the local economy.
Oakville’s Community Energy Strategy is a result of a two-year cross sector collaboration that draws strength from the expertise and demonstrated leadership of the Town of Oakville, Sheridan College, and the Oakville Energy Task Force, with additional funding from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Government of Ontario.
