Media advisory - Commons Committee on Natural Resources starts leading edge study on energy in Canadian communities - February 26, 2009



    OTTAWA, Feb. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - February 26: Standing Committee on Natural
Resources will hold the first meeting of its study on examination of the
Contribution of integrated approaches for providing energy services in
Canadian communities. Appearing will be Michael Harcourt, QUEST Chairman;
Kenneth Ogilvie, Executive Director emeritus, Pollution Probe and Michael
Cleland, President and CEO, Canadian Gas Association representatives of
Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow (QUEST).

    QUEST is an initiative focused on promoting an integrated approach to
land-use, energy, transport, water and waste management in communities and
urban centers. The underlying QUEST proposition is that meeting Canada's
climate change and clean air goals will require large reductions in energy
consumption in these areas, matching the type of energy with its use, better
heat management across applications and sectors, converting waste to energy,
as well as greater integration of on-site renewable sources of energy with
existing grids.
