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 and Environment 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 and Environment Management is a section within the Real Property Asset Management division of the Region of Peel. Formed in 2003, Energy and Environment 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 and Environment 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 and Environment 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.
The Energy and Environment Management team also provides leadership by speaking at various conferences and workshops on energy initiatives currently being undertaken by the Region of Peel.
Energy and Environment 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.
