Municipal energy and sustainability planning
Our plans address multiple facets, including renewable energy technologies, district energy, transportation systems, building efficiency and retrofits, land-use, density, and urban form. Perhaps most importantly, we customize our plans based on the local context and engage the local stakeholders responsible for decision-making and implementation to ensure that the plans address their needs.
IndEco's services for municipalities can be grouped into the following general areas:
- Strategic planning
- Management systems
- Stakeholder consultation
- Technology & market assessment
- Program delivery
- Program evaluation
Our municipal planning work is led by our President, Shona Adamson
. Shona has unique expertise in strategic planning and stakeholder engagement, and is known for her ability to develop plans that address local needs and overcome barriers. We also involve Josh Shook
in stakeholder engagement and research, and David Heeney
in strategy and modeling.
