From 2012-2013, I worked worked with the Canadian Urban Institute (CUI) on a project for the City of Burlington, Ontario. The project was part of the planning and preparation for the creation of a local Community Energy Plan which would allow Burlington to target and implement a number of energy efficiency and savings programs in the region.
Part of this project was an in-depth analysis of energy usage in the City. I was provided with historical energy (electricity and natural gas) usage data, addresses, land parcel data and land assessment data for the analysis. I worked with Tom Weatherburn at the CUI to develop a flexible database to transfer to the City, as well as a set of maps, visualizing locations in the city where energy usage were high or low (reproduced below).
