Community Engagement process - photo of group talking

IAP2’s North American Energy Sector Community of Practice (CoP) is a community of P2 practitioners and members of energy communities throughout North America who are committed to advancing meaningful engagement throughout the energy sector.

The CoP has four meetings each year, open to anyone with an interest in the energy sector, such as public participation (P2) professionals who are directly employed by an energy company, regulators, consultants, or academics. Each meeting is based around a specific topic that’s chosen in advance, and CoP members take turns facilitating discussion.

Topics that have been explored at past meetings include:

  • Energy workers doing land surveyThe future of P2/engagement in energy projects in Canada and the USA
  • Online engagement in the energy sector
  • Tracking feedback and how it informs decision-making in the energy sector
  • Security issues in public meetings
  • Politics and addressing political aspects of energy projects
  • Lessons learned - failed P2 efforts
  • Community development programs

The CoP includes members from across North America working in diverse parts of the energy sector, including power, oil & gas, renewables, transmission, mid-stream, and processing.
