York Region released the Corporate Energy report which highlights 2018 Regional initiatives and tracks progress toward York Region’s achievement of its greenhouse gases (GHG) targets. These targets are detailed in the Region’s Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan.

Accomplishments in 2018 include:

  • Installed anti-idle technology on 77% of the Region’s ambulance fleet which conserves 55,000 litres of gasoline per year
  • Installed hybrid-electric drivetrains on two ambulances which reduce fuel consumption by 7,900 litres of gasoline per year
  • Council-approved purchase of six battery electric transit buses to work toward reducing corporate emissions
  • Installed technologies on 40 fleet vehicles to identify ways to integrate plug-in hybrid vehicles into the corporate fleet.

Through collective effort, York Region continues to make steady progress on goals identified in the Energy Conservation and Demand Management plan and work is underway to update next year’s Corporate Energy report.
