In honour of World Town Planning Day 2019, OPPI's Eastern District Leadership Team invites you to a trivia night specifically for urban planning nerds!  Questions will start at 6:30 pm on November 8th at the Fox and Feather Pub on Elgin Street in Ottawa.  Yes, the street that is being “revitalized” right now, but don’t worry parking is free at City Hall after 6.  If you want to keep your planning genius a secret, that is OK too as we would be happy for you to just stop in to say “hi”.  There is no cost to attend and drinks and food will be available to purchase.  Hope you can help us celebrate WTPD 2019!

Energy Conscious Community: An Energy Planning Course for Planning Professionals

Start/End Date: Monday, November 11, 2019 12:00 AM - Monday, February 17, 2020 12:00 AM
District: Ontario

The Community Energy Planning (CEP) course was designed for professional land use planners to expand the skill-set needed to accelerate the integration of energy and climate policy into land use planning (i.e., official plans, secondary planning, non-statutory master plans, and zoning by-law) and their implementing development review processes. In an effort to build capacity for energy conscious cities, this course will examine the feasibility of a standardized and structured approach to transformative urban greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions and enhanced energy system resilience in communities across Canada, this course will examine best practices (i.e., policy, procedures and tools) to improve the quality, consistency and municipal capacity to implement CEPs.

Who is this course for?
This course was developed for planning professionals who would like to expand their knowledge of existing strategies to pursue community energy pathways and the support tools required to execute these initiatives. By investigating system integration, stakeholder engagement, community benefits and implementation strategies, this course will be beneficial as a support tool for professional planners in their central role of integrating local, renewable and conventional energy sources into their communities.

Why take this course?
Successful community energy planning is only possible if energy planning is integrated in the entire urban planning process. With the growing challenge of climate change, municipalities and energy utilities are charged with implementing both measures that adapt to the present conditions and measures that mitigate against future impacts. This course, which contains both an online and in-class component, will explore ways for municipalities and utilities to coordinate their actions to develop a comprehensive set of tools and strategies to manage their resources.

Concepts addressed in this course include:

• How land-use planning influences energy consumption and emissions
• The interrelationship of energy systems and municipal infrastructure (e.g., mobility, water, solid waste)
• The contribution of communities to national energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions
• The role of land use planning in promoting low carbon choices for transportation, electricity generation and space heating
• Sustainable community energy planning
• The mainstreaming of energy and climate policy in land-use planning
• The fundamentals of energy systems.
• A brief history of energy transitions in Ontario and the role of communities
• The impact of the modern energy transition on communities and land-use planners
• The value proposition, rationale, and business/economic/social case
