Call for EOI for Pilot Communities - The Smart Energy Communities Scorecard Project


Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow (QUEST)

Fri, 12/01/2017
The Smart Energy Communities Scorecard project, being led by QUEST and Pollution Probe,  is seeking up to six pilot communities across Canada to develop and test the implementation of a multi-sectoral tool to evaluate and benchmark the pathways to Smart Energy Communities in Canada. The project partners are seeking communities that are interested in contributing to a standardized approach to evaluating Smart Energy Communities in Canada, and willing to contribute data collection and sharing practices to inform the development of the Scorecard. The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest to participate as a Pilot Community has been extended to 5pm EST on December 15th.
Benefits of Participating as a Pilot Community 
The Scorecard Pilot Communities will have an opportunity to provide input throughout the development of the Scorecard, including input on the definition of success of Smart Energy Communities, Key Performance Indicators to measure Smart Energy Communities, and the development of the web-based dashboard.  All Pilot Communities will receive a score, as well as a roadmap for action to transition to a Smart Energy Community, upon the completion of the project. The successful candidates will benefit from participating in the project by:
  • Receiving a score, evaluating the policies and processes of the community
  • Receiving advisory support from the project team to improve the community's score
  • Contributing to a national, standard approach for evaluating Smart Energy Communities in Canada
  • Connecting to a national network of communities that have leading energy data collection practices
