Low-carbon Electrification in BC: Empowering BC Hydro to Lead (Webinar)

Primary tabs

May 26 2020 - 12:00pm

Learn from BCSEA’s regulatory team how they are tackling the hurdles holding up BC’s transformation from fossil fuels to clean electricity. Dissatisfied with the BC government’s recent “Interim Report” on BC Hydro, they are calling for a strong statutory mandate for BC Hydro to achieve low-carbon electrification, a new role that goes beyond merely providing electricity service upon customer request. They see this mandate propelling B.C. Hydro to develop a comprehensive long-term plan for achieving quantitative electrification objectives, adding low-carbon electrification to its upcoming Integrated Resource Plan. Check out BCSEA’s analysis of the Interim Report. Join us for a fascinating webinar on May 26.

Date: Tuesday, May 26, 2020
