B.C. still relies on fossil fuels
Energy keeps our society running. Right now, we rely on fossil fuels for most of our energy needs.
B.C.’s electricity is clean and renewable because it’s mostly hydro-powered. We also have clean fuel sources like renewable natural gas, liquid biofuels and low-carbon hydrogen.
Reducing pollution from energy
By 2030, B.C. will:
- Phase out BC Hydro’s last gas-powered facility so the electricity we make is 100% clean
- Reduce emissions from our gasoline and diesel supply by 30%
- Produce 1.3 billion litres per year of renewable fuels
