Clean and Renewable Energy

British Columbia generates nearly all of its electricity by harnessing the power of flowing water, a clean and renewable source. The rest comes from forest biomass, wind, natural gas, solar, and landfill gas.


The Resource Supply Potential for Renewable Natural Gas in B.C. Study (PDF, 975.1KB) was completed to inform Renewable Natural Gas-related amendments under the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Regulation (GGRR). Natural gas utilities are allowed to acquire up to 5% of their supply using renewable natural gas. This percentage will be increasing as per the CleanBC plan (PDF, 5.4MB).
