BRAMPTON: Identified as a catalytic action in the Brampton 2040 Vision, the Centre for Community Energy Transformation (previously referred to as the Institute for Sustainable Brampton) is being established as a community-based organization to help Brampton accelerate towards a low carbon future and act as a catalyst to implement the Community Energy and Emissions Reduction Plan (CEERP).
An energy transformation is underway in Brampton. Can you help spark a change?
The City is now seeking passionate Bramptonians who are interested in volunteering on the Centre for Community Energy Transformation (CCET) Task Force.
The Task Force will provide strategic advice to help establish a non-profit organization focused on leading Brampton’s energy transformation.
The following framework has been developed for the Centre:
Vision: A sustainable energy future.
Mission: To lead an inclusive suburban energy transformation.
Mandate: The Centre for Community Energy Transformation will be an action-oriented organization focused on convening partners to implement catalytic priorities from Brampton’s Community Energy and Emissions Reduction Plan.
Values: The work will:
• generate direct, local economic benefits
• be informed by science
• be replicable by other communities
• have quantifiable results
• be collaborative with community partners to amplify our collective impact
• ensure social justice and inclusivity
• demonstrate the concepts of circular economy and one planet living
• provide educational benefits Over the next year, the City will work with members of the CCET Advisory Task Force, the Region of Peel, and Sheridan College to formally establish the CCET. Residents can check out the recommendation report and presentation slides on city websites. Establishing the CCET will evolve over the short, medium, and long-term. It is estimated that it will take at least 18 months to set up a functioning CCET following its endorsement by Council, which occurred on September 30, 2020. A key aspect of establishing the CCET will be obtaining funding for the operation
