About GEDO 2017

Green Energy Doors Open (GEDO) is a showcase of sustainable energy projects and success stories in provinces across Canada. Every year in early autumn, businesses, organizations, community cooperatives, First Nations groups, municipalities and homeowners open their doors and host events to promote the decentralised sustainable energy initiatives and technologies in their communities. GEDO is free to participate in as a host and to attend, and aims to raise awareness, support, education and enthusiasm around decentralised sustainable energy in Canada.

GEDO originated in 2011 as a province-wide showcase in Ontario spearheaded by the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association  It has since then expanded into Alberta organised by Decentralised Energy Canada (DEC) in 2014, and into British Columbia organised by BC Sustainable Energy Association in 2016 to celebrate advancements in the decentralised sustainable energy sector across Canada.

GEDO 2016 featured 200 events in 75 communities in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia attracting close to 10,000 people who came out to learn and engage with sustainable energy.
