Energy and Environment at Peel
Rethinking Energy in Peel Region
The challenge of managing Peel Region's modern energy needs while fostering a healthy, clean environment involves rethinking the very concept of energy. At Energy Management, we're working to meet this challenge in a way that builds on sound financial planning, maximizes Regional partnerships and helps develop sustainable communities.
Energy Management is a section within the Real Property Asset Management division of the Region of Peel. Formed in 2003, Energy Management's mandate is to manage the Region's energy portfolio in an economical and sustainable manner, while promoting the wise use of energy to maintain a healthy environment.
This section will work with other departments to set energy efficiency standards and procedures to ensure the Region remains up-to-date with the latest in energy efficient technology.
Some of Energy Management's latest activities include energy efficiency audits, building retrofits, exploring opportunities for renewable energy, bi-fuel generation, demand reduction programs and providing general advisory services to all internal departments.
Energy Management is working with and continuing to become part of many committees such as the Regional Air Quality Work Group, Association of Municipalities of Ontario - Energy Advisory Committee and the Greater Toronto Area Clean Air Council.
Additionally, Energy Management hosts the Energy Matters Summit, an annual conference bringing together staff from municipalities, the commercial/industrial sector, hospitals and school boards to share ideas and best practices in energy management and reduction.
The Energy Management team also provides leadership by speaking at various conferences and workshops on energy initiatives currently being undertaken by the Region of Peel.
Energy Management will fulfill the Region's need for reliable and cost effective energy supply and management while positioning the Region of Peel as a leader in energy efficiency.
