Transportation Energy Solutions

Transportation fuels power our economy and the daily lives of British Columbians. In 2014, the province used 436 petajoules of energy moving people and products – over 20 times the power that will be provided each year by the Site C Clean Energy Project.

Currently, 96% of this energy is provided by fossil fuels. As a result, the use of transportation fuels accounts for almost 38% of B.C.’s total greenhouse gas emissions annually.

The Province of British Columbia is committed to:

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the use of transportation fuels
  • Developing a low carbon transportation industry sector by supporting the transition to clean energy vehicles
  • Expanding the range of transportation technology and low carbon fuel options for British Columbians
