October 19, 2023
Revelstoke, B.C.

Community bioenergy systems are a proven way that communities can reduce consumption of fossil fuels, support their local economy, and keep energy dollars local. Revelstoke is a B.C. pioneer in municipal district heating systems and has been operating a bioenergy system since 2005 that now provides heat to eight local buildings.

  • What has been Revelstoke’s experience and how might it be relevant to other communities either operating or considering community energy systems?
  • What is the experience of other communities? What is critical for success and what should be avoided?
  • What is the current bioenergy context across Canada as communities explore ways to reduce local carbon pollution, boost their economy, and protect their residents from wildfires?
  • What is the role of the private sector and other levels of government?

These will be among the questions we’ll work to answer through the Bio-Heat Summit.

The Bio-Heat Summit was initiated by the City of Revelstoke and is being supported by Tourism Revelstoke and the Community Energy Association.
