The Government of Prince Edward Island has developed a 10-year energy strategy to reduce energy use, establish cleaner and locally produced energy sources and moderate future energy price increases.
The PEI Energy Strategy is based on recommendations from Dunsky Energy Consulting with considerable input from individuals, businesses and organizations who took part in the consultation process.
Key Areas for Action
The Provincial Energy Strategy addresses four key areas where we need to take action to determine our energy future:
- Energy Efficiency and Conservation
- Power Generation and Management
- Biomass and Heating
Guiding principles for energy strategy
- Lower greenhouse gas emissions
- Actions and decisions should be cost-effective
- Local economic opportunities
The energy strategy will result in energy savings for Islanders and greater self-sufficiency by reducing our reliance on imported fossil fuels. It will also translate into good jobs and economic opportunity with an increase in retrofitting projects and more energy produced locally.
Implementing the Plan
The PEI Energy Corporation and the efficency PEI are developing an implementation plan. It will be aligned with the PEI Climate Change Mitigation Recommendations Report.
