Our Energy Guelph
Created in 2007, the Community Energy Initiative (CEI) is Guelph’s renowned 25-year plan to use less energy and emit less greenhouse gases. Guelph City Council launched Our Energy Guelph, originally the CEI Update Task Force, in April 2016. Some key events since then:
- May 2018: OEG delivers a ten-year update to the CEI, recommending a community-wide net zero carbon target by 2050; Council accepts this target.
- May 2019: OEG delivers the pathway to net zero carbon, and is incorporated as a not-for-profit enterprise later that month.
- July 2019: The OEG permanent Board of Directors holds its first meeting.
- November 2019: OEG hires Alex Chapman as its Executive Director.
