NEW – Federal: CPA looking for possible opportunities in government’s new emission tracking platform
The federal government announced an $80,000 investment to support the development of the Municipal Energy and Emission Database (MEED), an integrated geospatial platform that tracks greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for municipalities across Canada.
The platform supports open knowledge and data sharing among municipalities, particularly smaller and medium-sized municipalities, allowing greater access to standardized data on energy use and GHG emissions to support land-use planning, policy development and program design. This information is critical for designing effective plans for reducing GHG emissions.
The CPA will be reviewing this application to see how industry can advance the propane advantage with municipalities.
