It’s an exciting time. Momentum is building. We are starting to see some transformative change as we integrate new technologies, innovations and green solutions to meet the energy needs of our customers. As we look at ways to accelerate our transition to clean energy, our focus continues to be on reducing our carbon emissions in an affordable way for our customers. Nova Scotia has set ambitious targets to address climate change in our province—and clean electricity plays an important role. So does collaboration. We know achieving these goals will take all of us working together in partnership with stakeholders, government and communities. We want to continue that work and those conversations with municipalities, about opportunities to create a cleaner, more sustainable province together.

Topics will include:

  • why smart municipalities need a smart grid—how transforming our power grid will help transform our communities
  • Electrification of transit
  • Smart grid development
  • Partnership potential for electrification of buildings and other operations
  • clean energy transition
  • building Nova Scotia’s green economy and contributing to job creation within the province
  • how Nova Scotians can help us grow our use of clean energy through using in-home batteries and smart electric vehicle chargers
  • how we’re collaborating with some municipalities on key initiatives including:

Wed. 29 Sep, 2021 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Us for NSFM’s Main Street Webinar to Learn about the Nova Scotia’s Main Street Assessment Tool and Community Conversation Guide Developed by FBM Planning

How:  Please follow this link to register for the webinar by Tuesday, September 28:  https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMsceqgrzwvH9QJ3cfFnUedBTuXhNJp7qPI

 

In 2020-21, FBM met with residents in seven small communities across Nova Scotia to discuss the challenges and opportunities of their Main Streets. As a result of their findings, FBM developed the Main Street Assessment Tool and Community Conversation Guide (which will soon be available at nsfm.ca/main-streets). The tool was developed around themes of Main Streets for Movement and Main Streets as Places. It is a user-friendly tool for residents and leaders to assess Main Street elements in their community and plan for beneficial changes, so these areas can better serve local needs. 

 

Join members the FBM team to learn about the project and how it can inform work in your community.

 

This work was the result of collaboration of the NSFM Active Transportation Committee and FBM Planning, along with input from NS Transportation and Active Transit, Develop Nova Scotia, Ecology Action Centre, Bicycle Nova Scotia, and others.
