CEEP - Community Energy and Emission Plan
As part of the City’s ongoing efforts to reduce its impact on climate change, the City developed a Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) in 2011. The CEEP outlines a strategy to help conserve energy in the areas of transportation, buildings and solid waste. The plan outlines actions and policies that help to, for instance, diversify our energy supply, create energy efficient buildings and build a community that maximizes the use of sustainable transportation modes and minimizes waste. The CEEP was developed with input from City staff, residents and organizations in New Westminster.
As part of the plan, the City adopted a GHG emissions reduction target that is associated with implementation of actions under the “Moderate Green” scenario described in the CEEP: Reduce community-wide GHG emissions by 15% by 2030 (relative to 2007 levels).
The City is currently implementing its CEEP and has launched Energy Save New West, a program designed to improve the energy efficiency of residential homes and businesses in New Westminster.
