Energy Use (Community)

Add to my Favorites Remove from my Favorites

Community energy use in 2021 realized a statistical increase compared to 2020 levels which is largely attributed to a increase in passenger vehicles due to the recovery from the pandemic.  As the community has a target to reduce total energy consumption by 10% versus 2007 levels, the energy use result is not currently meeting desired performance target, and is trending away from this target as we return to normal activities as we emerge from the pandemic. Whistler’s population equivalent remained low in 2021 due to the continued impact of the pandemic, which triggered the emissions by population equivalent to jump to levels not seen since 2005.

Why we monitor this

Non-renewable energy sources have an impact on future energy supplies, as well as ecosystem and human health, locally and abroad. Even large renewable projects such as hydroelectric dams have significant impacts on land and aquatic ecosystems. Whistler’s ability to reduce dependence on energy resources will help the community to better adapt to future price shocks, reduce overall environmental impact and avoid associated negative health issues.

What this measures

Total energy used includes electricity delivered, the energy used to generate space and water heating/cooling, transportation energy for the RMOW’s larger fleets of vehicles and an estimate of vehicle transportation energy used within the boundaries of the community. This indicator accounts only for the energy consumed within the boundaries of the RMOW, and does not account for the energy used in the production and transportation of products consumed within the resort.
