Since the release of Clean Energy BC’s white paper titled “Electrification of BC”, electrification has generated quite the buzz across the province. “Electrification of BC” has drummed up attention and been featured in 9 news articles. Low-carbon electrification has surfaced at the forefront of many people’s minds, including the provincial government.

generate 2018 clean energy bc electrification of bc white paper

Last week, Globe & Mail’s Justine Hunter published “The electrification of B.C.: How a 2030 deadline is tipping the balance of power”

Jae Mather, executive director of Clean Energy BC, calculates the province will require about 50 per cent more electricity production than it has now to meet demand in 2030. Site C will provide about 10 per cent of that. With the cost of renewable energy dropping, smaller projects, especially wind power, will likely do the rest. The additional infrastructure needed will drive up energy costs, and that should help consumers embrace conservation.

Join in on this exciting opportunity and discuss electrification at Generate 2018.

Generate 2018 Transformation Through Electrification will continue to push the conversation of how we can reach a low-carbon future, and showcases the innovative solutions and communities leading the way.

Clean Energy BC’s Generate 2018 Transformation Through Electrification has some excellent news. We are thrilled to announce an additional keynote speaker, the Hounourable Amarjeet Sohi. Minister Sohi was appointed Minister of Natural Resources in July 2018 – And he has been very busy since then!

In late August 2018, he visited Sidney, BC to celebrate BC Hydro’s seven electric vehicle fast-chargers on Vancouver Island, increasing accessibility for electric vehicles across the region.

We are paving the way to a low-carbon future by investing in green infrastructure. The opening of these stations is an important step toward lowering emissions and making electric and alternative fuel vehicles a viable travel option for British Columbians.

– Amarjeet Sohi

Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources

Minister Sohi has been working on Generation Energy, a federal report that clearly points to electrification as part of Canada’s low-carbon future. With his experience as a three-term Edmonton City Councillor, he understands the importance of infrastructure as the foundation for strong, sustainable, and inclusive communities.

Our province and our country are getting serious about reducing carbon emissions, mitigating climate change, growing our economy through clean growth and increasing job security! There has never been a better time for the clean energy industry.

Join us for Generate 2018 Transformation Through Electrification in Vancouver from November 26 to November 28 to learn more about this exciting opportunity. This is an unparalleled event to network with clean energy professionals, First Nations and government. Don’t miss out, register today!
