Whistler, British Columbia, Canada - Integrated Energy, Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Management Plan

Type of Initiative: Energy Management and Use

Population: 9,700 residents / average daily population (residents + visitors) 24,000

Whistler is a very popular resort community with an economy overwhelmingly oriented toward tourism.

Among the studied municipalities, Whistler had the most comprehensive energy management plan. Its Integrated Energy Plan (IEP) is the only such plan to specify a rigorous set of performance measures. These measures are to be used on a continuous basis for monitoring progress in implementing the plan and achieving its energy use and emissions targets. As part of the IEP, the municipality made an energy use and emissions inventory for the year 2000, which will be used as the baseline for evaluating future progress.
