Community Energy and Emissions Plan Update

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Delta recognizes that now, more than ever before, our community needs to implement bold and urgent measures to address climate change.

This is why the City of Delta is refreshing our Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP). The CEEP will be our pathway towards reducing our contributions to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that cause climate change (climate change mitigation). A key focus of this CEEP is also to identify how climate action can help us achieve other community priorities like health and well-being, equity and inclusion and resilience to extreme weather events. The good news is we now know what we have to do and we are in a good place to get started.

The CEEP update will include:

  • public and stakeholder engagement
  • completing an inventory; and
  • identifying the most appropriate and effective climate action decisions for the city and community.

Through this process we aim to understand Delta’s unique community assets, values, and needs and the steps needed to make the biggest impact. The final plan will be integrated and implemented to support Delta’s social, economic, and environmental resilience in the short and long-term.

What we're asking now

Phase 2 Engagement. This phase will focus on feedback on the various actions we should prioritize in the CEEP.

We will be looking at the Big Moves needed to reduce our emissions and what these moves will look like in Delta.

  • Electrify transportation
  • Shift beyond the car (active transportation and transit)
  • Step Up new buildings (energy efficient and low carbon new buildings)
  • Retrofit existing buildings (make existing buildings more energy efficient with low carbon heating systems)
  • Close the loop on waste

We want to gain local insights and local perspectives and will be exploring:

  • What are local priorities?
  • What is already happening locally?
  • What are potential local co-benefits of implementing actions within the Big Moves?

How to get involved:

  • Ask us a question.
  • Answer the quick poll on which co-benefits of climate action are important to you.
  • Share your stories. We are compiling stories of what residents and businesses are already doing, or hoping to do. To be included, enter your story, below.
  • Complete Survey #2 between September 7th and November 4th to be entered to win a prize package valued at $100. If you prefer a paper copy, the survey can be printed off from the list of items on the right-hand side of this page and be dropped off at Delta City Hall.

NOTE: We have extended the survey deadline to November 4th!

Phase 1 Engagement - Public Survey #1 and stakeholder workshops focused on understanding climate change, vision and current modeling.

Phase one of the Community Energy Emissions Plan (CEEP) public engagement revealed that Delta residents are concerned about the effects of climate change on their city. The residents want assistance from the City to reduce emissions and prepare for the impacts of a changing climate. Participants in this portion of CEEP engagement feel a personal sense of responsibility to help reduce emissions that contribute to climate change and are looking to the City to lead by example to support their low carbon behaviors.

Calling all Students!

Let’s Talk Delta wants to know what is important to youth!

Students have opinions, ideas, and perspectives that are important to creating a future for the City of Delta that is sustainable, innovative, and theirs. We want to make sure Delta youth have a chance to understand how the city develops plans like the Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and help everyone make more environmentally friendly choices. We also want youth to know that their voice matters to City Hall and can help us make these plans even better.

What is a CEEP?

The CEEP is the City’s action plan to help our community rapidly reduce GHG emissions in a way that is relevant and effective for our city and even prepare for the impacts of a changing climate. The CEEP is a climate mitigation plan. This means it focuses on the ways we can reduce the GHG emissions that contribute to climate change and shift our community toward more sustainable practices.

It will detail the specific ways we can rethink and transform how we:

  • heat and cool our buildings:
  • how we get around; and
  • how we dispose of our waste.

There are three key ways the City of Delta can do this:

  1. Infrastructure: Enable Choice through infrastructure decisions.
  2. Policy & Regulation: Shape Choice through policy and regulation.
  3. Engagement & Outreach: Support Choice through engagement and outreach.

    The City of Delta is refreshing our Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP), which guides us towards reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and helps us achieve other community priorities like health and well-being, equity and inclusion and resilience to extreme weather events.

    This survey will help us collect feedback from a diverse sample of our population. This survey will also help us develop a CEEP that aligns with Delta residents’ values, challenges, and hopes for the future and support residents in taking impactful GHG reduction actions.

    This is the first of two surveys in the CEEP Planning Process.

    As the City of Delta builds the new Community Energy and Emissions Plan (“CEEP”), we want to ensure the actions we include reflect community priorities. 

    While the CEEP builds on Delta’s achievements and climate action to date, it will be our pathway forward to rapidly reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that pollute our city and contribute to climate change.  It’s important to us that the plan is relevant and effective for our city; thank you for taking the time to lend your perspective.

    This is the second of two surveys in the CEEP development process. The first survey helped us understand residents’ values around climate change. This second survey will build upon those results, and give us a better idea of which actions are most important to residents. In this survey, we will ask you to consider the specific ways we can rethink and transform how we heat and cool our buildings, how we get around, and how we dispose of our solid waste. It is important to remember that the actions listed here are just those that, as a local government, we have authority and a responsibility to address. Science tells us that there are six Big Moves local governments can prioritize to reduce emissions; they are shown in the graphic above.  Each section of this survey digs deeper into strategies we as a local government can prioritize to reach Big Moves goals.

    三角洲市政府正在制定新的“社区能源和排放计划”(Community Energy and Emissions Plan,英文缩写为“CEEP”),我们希望确保其中的行动计划能够反映社区民众的关注重点。 

    虽然CEEP是基于三角洲市的既有成就和气候行动而制定的,但它将为我们提供指南,以快速减少污染城市并导致气候变化的温室气体(GHG)排放。确保该计划对我们城市切实有效,这一点非常重要;感谢您抽出时间提出您的观点。

    CEEP的制定过程中有两次问卷调查,这是其中的第二次。第一次问卷调查帮助我们了解了在气候变化问题方面本市居民持有的价值观。第二次调查将基于这些调查结果,让我们更好地了解哪些行动对本市居民最重要。在本次调查中,我们将请您考虑,在建筑供暖和制冷、出行、固体垃圾处理方式上,我们可以在哪些具体方面进行重新思考和改革。请注意,这里列出的行动,只是我们作为地方政府有权力和责任做出应对的行动。科学告诉我们,地方政府可以优先采取六大行动来减排;如下图所示。为实现这些行动目标,对于我们作为地方政府可以优先考虑的战略,在本调查问卷的每一部分都进行了较为深入的探讨。
