This morning Council unanimously passed a motion that administration prepare a plan to implement 11 Strategic Actions for the Energy Transition Strategy.
I was happy that these passed with the support of all Councillors. We recognize the risks to the security and health of our City if we choose not to take meaningful steps toward change.
The Strategy will help move Edmonton towards energy independence, and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels which currently provide 95% of our City’s energy. Without efficiencies and a reduction in per capita energy use and GHGs, Edmonton’s air quality, food supply, and electricity could be in jeopardy.
