"The City of Guelph is making strides toward its goal to achieve 100 per cent of its energy needs through renewable sources by 2050. The goal and approach reflect the community’s and Council’s prioritization of climate change mitigation.
In an information report, dated Sept. 13, staff provided Council with an update on the City’s energy performance in the 2019 Energy Conservation and Demand Management report. So far, the City has achieved 23.6 per cent of its 100 per cent renewable energy goal. A key contributor to this has been the use of recovered biogas at the wastewater treatment plant, which reduces the need for natural gas and eliminates nearly 4.6 million kilograms of CO2 each year."
