Land Use - Clean Energy

To deliver a reliable supply of electricity, a balance is required between dependable capacity resources, such as large hydro storage projects on the Peace and Columbia River systems, and intermittent renewable resources.

Due to B.C.’s climate and geography, the Province’s clean and renewable energy potential is diverse, vast and enviable. Not only can power projects use water and wind to produce energy, they can also use biomass, waste wood, solar, tidal, wave, geothermal and other natural resources.

Clean Energy projects have the potential to generate energy that meets and balances economic, environmental and social concerns.
