In 2018, the Green Leagues program continued in assisting community leagues with their sustainability initiatives.

 

 

 

The third annual Green Leagues Energy 101 workshop series had each workshop fully subscripted with Community League members learning about sustainable planning, energy efficiency, solar PV, and green funding opportunities for their Community Leagues

Green Leagues also saw an expanded interest in various other types of sustainability initiatives from Community Leagues and hosted workshops on building new halls, community gardens, waste management, and low impact development as a result.

Through these workshops, development of online resources, one-to-one support, and the sharing of success stories, the Green League program builds league leadership and capacity for giving our communities a more sustainable future 

 

NAIT Alternative Energy Technology Program Partnership

 

 

The Green Leagues program has worked closely with the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT)’s Alternative Energy Technology Program to organize student-run energy audits at several Community Leagues. In these projects, Community Leagues have opened their doors of their facilities as a training and demonstration site for the ALTE 2254 course – Energy Audit and Management.

 

This opportunity provided students real hands-on learning experiences, and related challenges with Community Leagues as part of their training in conducting commercial scale, ASHRAE Level 2, energy audits. In return, the participating Community Leagues received multiple energy audits by the students and their recommended energy management opportunities, energy efficiency measures, and energy action plans.  

2017/2018 – Cloverdale and Riverdale Community Leagues

2018/2019 – Windsor Park Community League

 

Participating leagues are interested in continuing to collaborate with NAIT’s Alternative Energy Technology Program to evaluate the effectiveness of the implemented energy management measures. However, new leagues that are interested also partnering the NAIT program are encouraged to contact us at Greenleagues@efcl.org
