Roving Energy Manager Program

Funding Programs

 This program is not accepting applications at this time.

The Roving Energy Manager (REM) program helps municipalities navigate the ever-changing energy efficiency landscape by providing a free, fractional energy manager service. This service will help municipalities identify, report and implement energy-saving opportunities. The program provides the in-house capacity of an energy manager without the added cost of hiring one.

This service provides solutions to communities with limited energy management experience and those that have not previously engaged in the Action Centre’s energy management initiatives (Municipal Energy Manager Program, Municipal Energy Champions Program or the Recreation Energy Conservation program).

Participating in this program will help your municipality:

  • Understand energy use and management
  • Better track municipal energy consumption
  • Move forward in the energy planning process
  • Learn how to identify energy efficiency and renewable energy projects
  • Develop an approach for energy management initiatives
  • Receive up to $10,000 in funding for specific energy management opportunities


The Roving Energy Manager program provides participants with technical assistance and education to: 

  • Complete a scoping activity to create a customized energy planning approach
  • Identify, collect, and enter energy consumption data
  • Develop an energy consumption inventory
  • Identify energy management opportunities for municipal operations via site visits to communities or virtual audit options
  • Create energy management plan recommendations for their municipality, including a list of priorities and suggestions of key plan elements
  • Provide access to energy efficiency software and measurement tools
  • Receive advice on project implementation and guidance on applications, proposals to relevant programs
  • Deliver learning activities on energy management and climate action solutions

To help municipalities implement their energy management plans, participating municipalities will be eligible for up to $10,000 in funding to support energy efficiency projects.


Start by reviewing the Roving Energy Manager Guidebook to get to know the program and understand eligibility criteria.

We will review each submission and select up to a maximum of five municipalities to participate in the program. Your submission should fully explain why your municipality needs support managing municipal energy usage, and how you would benefit from this program.

This program is administered by the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre and funded by the Government of Alberta.
