Energy efficiency is key to reducing the environmental impact and operations budgets of municipalities. During Phase 1 of the Culture of Efficiency Project, our Energy Efficiency Coordinator travelled around Nova Scotia speaking to municipal councils encouraging them to invest into energy efficiency. We have plenty of resources to share if your municipality is looking for guidance. Check out our Guide to writing a municipal energy management strategy (PPT). It is a step-by-step walk through including quick statistics and case studies.

There are several excellent examples of municipal leadership right here in Nova Scotia! For more information, email our Energy Efficiency Coordinator.
