Urban Systems was recently a part of a consulting team to develop the Greenhouse Gas Action Toolkit for Alberta Communities. The Toolkit offers Alberta communities a leading edge, user-friendly resource guide to reduce community greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs. As the technical members of the consulting team Urban Systems led the development of:
- an inventory of potential greenhouse gas emissions and energy reduction opportunities for Alberta communities;
- a comprehensive, yet user friendly decision-support tool that can help local government employees allocate their financial resources in the most effective manner;
- a community-based energy and greenhouse gas inventory and forecasting tool;
- a funding and financing strategy to support the development of strong-business cases for action; and a number of strategies that could be used by local government and community leaders to overcoming the traditional barriers to action.
