March 19, 2024 – Registration is open for the Green Municipal Fund’s e-learning series “Tackling energy use in municipal and community buildings”.

“Investing in building energy performance and resilience will not only decrease our buildings’ impact on the climate, but will also reduce maintenance costs, create jobs, and improve our quality of life,” says GMF.

The four free, self-paced courses in the series aim to help learners identify and implement the best solutions for sustainability and significant GHG emissions reductions in buildings. Courses include:

Leading the way in municipal buildings. Discover how municipalities can model best practices to inspire their residents and businesses to take action.

Scaling up solutions for community energy generation. Explore two different approaches for adopting low-carbon energy solutions at a broader scale in your community: district energy systems and renewable energy generation systems, with a focus on wind and solar.

Incentive and financing options for building energy upgrades. Learn how your municipality or organization can support residents and businesses to complete energy upgrades to existing homes and buildings.

Advancing high-performance buildings in your community. Discover opportunities for municipalities to drive deep GHG reductions in buildings—and broadly in their communities—through policies and programs that “normalize the adoption of climate-friendly choices”.

The courses are based on GMF’s Municipal Energy Roadmap, which offers guidance when identifying solutions for achieving significant GHG emissions reductions in municipal and community buildings, and meeting long-term sustainability objectives.

The Green Municipal Fund is a program of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, funded by the Government of Canada.
