British Columbia Details Plan To Shift Homes, Cars To Clean Energy

The Western Canadian province of British Columbia on Dec. 5 outlined the first measures it will take to cut carbon emissions by 40% by 2030, including shifting homes and vehicles to clean or renewable energy.

The province would still support its nascent LNG industry, with the 68-page CleanBC plan calling for LNG firms to use the “greenest technology available.”

Some 75% of British Columbia’s planned emission cuts would be achieved by shifting homes, vehicles and industry off fossil fuels and onto clean or renewable energy, boosting energy efficiency, and by attracting low-carbon investment.
