Ecology Ottawa, on behalf of the Community Energy Network of Eastern Ontario, is engaged in province-wide research on emerging promising practices related to energy efficiency and renewable energy.
As we widely disseminate the information, it is hoped that Network members will learn about what other institutions across Ontario are doing to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy. Leaders at these institutions will be inspired and encouraged to adopt emerging promising practices themselves.
When the promising initiatives become more widely known and implemented, Eastern Ontario will become a leader in driving demand for the goods and services that create jobs in the clean energy economy.
If you know of a promising practice that you feel deserves some attention, please e-mail your ideas to trevor.hache [@] ecologyottawa.ca or phone (613) 860-5353.
A map of the Promising Practices we have written about so far is available here.
