CEEI Resources

The Community Energy & Emissions Inventory has a rich development history including research studies and stakeholder engagement materials that are provided as resources on the page below.

July 13 Webinar with RuralBC Secretariat

The 2007 CEEI Reports were the subject of the latest in a series of webinars produced by the RuralBC Secretariat on various topics designed to be of interest to local government staff, officials, and other community leaders across British Columbia. Presenters included staff from The City of North Vancouver, Regional District of Central Kootenay, Stantec Consulting, and members of the CEEI Working Group.

Background Resources

Sector-specific Resources

This report is intended to familiarize local government staff and elected officials with the potential benefits of using LiDAR. The specific application of LiDAR to solar energy mapping is provided here, although this presents only one of many valuable products that can be generated from these datasets.

The intent of this study is to build upon information prepared by the Pembina Institute, with input from Enerficiency Consulting, that outlined available data sources and possible approaches that could be taken to develop oil and propane estimates for CEEI. Further investigation of the data sources was undertaken, and estimates of consumption were calculated for each local government. In addition to heating oil and propane, estimates of wood consumption have also been included.

The purpose of this study was to improve vehicle kilometres travelled (VKT) estimates for determining GHG vehicle emissions in different regions of the Province.

This report compares theoretical measures and technical approaches in models that estimate vehicle greenhouse gas emissions at the local level.

This report represents an inventory of greenhouse gas generation from the top 35 landfills in British Columbia.

Local Government Contributions

The City of North Vancouver undertook this analysis of the CEEI as an initial exploration of how the CEEI will enable local governments to evaluate more accurately their current GHG contributions and support the Provincial mandate for substantial reductions over the coming decade.

At the time that the draft 2007 CEEI reports were released in March 2009, this short survey was posted to solicit feedback from local government staff and others who might use the reports.

Community Energy and Emissions Planning Resources

This guide is the outcome of a collaborative project of the Province of British Columbia and the Community Energy Association. It supports local government elected officials and staff to undertake an energy and emissions planning process.

Energy and GHG Modelling Resources

The purpose of this paper is to compare the assertive greenhouse gas reduction targets (and related actions) that a select number of B.C. local government have taken with those of a few leading European communities, making a number of observations on the kinds of actions all B.C. local governments might consider on their path towards becoming a low carbon community.

The Province of BC and Smart Planning for Communities present the following six case studies and webcasts. Each case study describes a distinct community-scale energy and GHG modelling tool highlighting the recent experience of five local governments in British Columbia.

This report features one of a growing number of innovative methodological approaches to projecting future ‘urban form’ and the impact on greenhouse gas emissions in a community.

International Recognition

On behalf of the Technical Committee on Urban Energy Characterization (TCUEC), Natural Resources Canada commissioned this review and evaluation of available methods for energy and GHG characterization, including B.C.'s CEEI Initiative.
