The energy we use contributes to climate change.

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.

Tracking emissions from energy

We track emissions caused by fossil fuels and electricity.

Learn how transportation and industries make climate pollution and what we’re doing to address it.

Reducing emissions 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

B.C. is taking action

We’re promoting electricity and developing new clean and renewable fuels.
