Join Tyler Bryant, Public Policy Manager, FortisBC, and Andrea Roszell, Director, Guidehouse as they present the Clean Growth Pathways to 2050: Achieving the BC Government’s Climate Objectives.
In 2018, British Columbia became one of the first jurisdictions in the world to recognize the role of renewable gases to achieve GHG emissions reductions targets. The CleanBC plan sets a goal for all end-use gas consumption to be 15% renewable by 2030. From this starting point, Guidehouse and FortisBC developed a Pathways report to evaluate the role that the gas system could have for BC to achieve its GHG reduction target of 80% by 2050. This report makes a strong case that maintaining the use of gas infrastructure is a key strategy for long-term decarbonization. This webinar will outline the main findings and discuss FortisBC’s efforts to reduce GHG emissions by 30% by 2030.
