The tool, which free through the KCVS website www.climatesolutions.kcvs.ca, is peer-reviewed by 25 global experts on a variety of intersecting fields including climate change, mitigation strategies and impacts and education.
The tool allows users to customize climate change mitigation strategies through adjusting multiple variables from five different sectors -- electricity, transportation, land use, buildings and materials.
Each sector breaks down into sub-categories to reveal more specific information about how some variables are more carbon-intensive than others. The tool is supported by Energy Efficiency Alberta, a provincial government agency.

Currently through NEET, non-profits can receive audits to identify opportunities to save on energy costs. The audit phase of the program wrapped up this week. The next step in the program will see the government working with contractors to purchase and install the needed upgrades, which could be everything from LED lighting to new furnaces or solar energy systems.
Details and financial projections for the upgrade portion of the program are expected to be released in the near future.
