The Missing 25%:
CleanBC & GHGs

On behalf of Clean Energy BC, we welcome you to Generate 2019: Electrification Right Here, Right Now. British Columbia has set ambitious GHG reduction targets for 2030 under CleanBC and the goal is for all British Columbians to start making changes right here, right now.

As wind, solar, and battery storage prices plummet, decarbonization continues to grow and the private sector offers innovative solutions. Generate 2019 will highlight preeminent thought and action leaders as well as key changes in the decarbonization process, demonstrating that BC is successfully embarking on the transition to electrification to meet its GHG reduction targets.

Aligning our climate and electricity goals is the clear path forward, particularly with a growing natural resources sector. The clean energy sector in BC is prepared to advance energy solutions with low-carbon, low-cost electrification.

BC’s clean energy sector is strong thanks to you. It was built through decades of a supportive environment cultivated by developers, operators, First Nations, and the supply chain. Please take some time at Generate 2019 to connect with the incredible professionals around you, keep an open mind, stay engaged, and play an active role in forming the dialogue surrounding our clean energy future.
