The BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) is proud to welcome Decentralised Energy Canada (DEC) as a new member of the association.

With their stringent work at advancing alternative energy production and desire to diversify Canada’s energy portfolio, DEC is a natural partner for the BCSEA. Both organizations are determined to forward the transition to a low-carbon economy in BC, Alberta and beyond.

BCSEA looks forward to working closely alongside DEC in a collaborative and supportive partnership. Both organizations will support each other’s community, business and family initiatives that serve to educate Canadians on the benefits of renewable energy generation, conservation and efficiency.

Both BCSEA and DEC understand the importance of transitioning from legacy fuels like oil and gas, to the economically viable and valuable renewable energy sources of the future. This exciting collaborative partnership will add just more strength to the growing renewable energy movement in BC.

 

“We have enjoyed working with DEC so far on the national Green Energy Doors Open campaign and look forward to investigating further opportunities for collaboration. Addressing energy needs across provincial lines is an important piece of building a low-carbon economy for all of Canada.”

Jessica McIlroy, Executive Director, BC Sustainable Energy Association

 

“I am honored and excited about the partnership between DEC and the BCSEA. DEC is a national industry association that shares a very similar mandate with the BCSEA. The five chapters of the BCSEA are a tremendous network asset that will accelerate the uptake of sustainable energy in BC. DEC’s national network of innovators, project developers and investors will strengthen BC’s capacity in its burgeoning sustainable energy industry. We are looking forward to a productive collaborative future with the BCSEA.”

Anouk Kendall, President, Decentralised Energy Canada
