Energy Policy Development for Four Levels of Government

Andrew Pape-Salmon will present his experience managing the development of separate government policy “strategies” for improving the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings, among other topics. Andrew’s experience includes three iterations for the Provincial Government in 2004, 2007 and 2015, a large city in the Lower Mainland in 2014, a smaller city on Vancouver Island in 2015, a Regional District in 2015 and several remote community First Nations from 1998 to 2009. He will highlight the commonalities and differences among all of the strategies from a project management standpoint – including the project scope, stakeholder engagement representation and methods, analytical framework, project funding base and proponent management process. In addition, he will present a proposed construct for effective policy development.
