The infrastructure deficit currently facing municipalities worldwide is actually a once-in-a-generation
opportunity to improve the efficiency of energy, transportation, land-use, water and waste systems in communities, and
thereby cut costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and take a giant step in the direction of sustainability. Integrated
Community Energy Solutions (ICES) is a model that is being implemented worldwide to achieve these results.
Cold climate communities present a unique challenge with respect to energy use. I invite you to participate in QUEST’s 6th
annual conference - the only conference and tradeshow in Canada that is taking an integrated approach to addressing our current infrastructure and investment challenges. This year’s event will showcase the latest research, proven
solutions, and the most innovative opportunities relating to ICES, and all within the context of creating
smart energy communities in cold climates.
