Clean Transportation Policies & Programs

Clean energy vehicles make transportation choices more affordable for British Columbians and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. B.C. has a world-leading hydrogen fuel cell sector and a growing industrial sector related to batteries, motors, controllers and chargers.

Clean energy vehicles include:

  • Battery electric vehicles
  • Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles
  • Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

These vehicles operate on locally-made electricity or hydrogen, so their increased adoption will reduce emissions and help shift spending on imported transportation fuels to locally made fuels, keeping more investment within the province.
