Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
Is this a result of conscious and effective policy, or the
de-industrialization of Vancouver and the flight of jobs out into
the Fraser Valley? How is this performance measured, and is it
meaningful? Finally, do you feel Vancouver has an adequate Energy
Descent Action Plan (EDAP)?
This Village Vancouver Energy research and project group is
charged with analysing and critiquing Vancouver's energy
performance, making recommendations for improvements, and
We have some homework first. We are currently analysing 3 EDAP or EDAP-related reports: The Kinsale EDAP drafted by Rob Hopkins, Portland Oregon's Peak Oil Task Force Report (3 years old!), and the Zero Carbon Britain report.
We need to attract a few more members, each of whom could tackle a component of the research. We also need to find a way to get comprehensive data. The City of Vancouver has pledged to open all its data resources, and we need to make sure we know everything our government does.
