Renewable Energy in Africa (REnA)

REnA is an ongoing project being led by the Vancouver Chapter. It all started in early 2019 when a long time BCSEA member, Dr. Henry Mwandemere, approached the Chapter with the idea to bring renewable energy to Karonga, Malawi. Henry is a retired UN scientist residing in Vancouver and his mission is to combat energy poverty in Africa by addressing two key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: 

#5 - Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

#7 - Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable modern energy for all

Fairfield Gonzales Climate Action Meeting, October 10

October 14, 2019
BCSEA Victoria Chapter

On October 10th, the Victoria Chapter teamed up with the Fairfield Gonzales Community Association to host a meeting focused on local action and the City of Victoria’s Climate Leadership Plan.

Last year, the City of Victoria finalized its ambitious plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions and switch the community to 100% renewable energy use. The City is now working out the details of how to achieve this energy revolution. We think they will need everyone’s help to make it work.

2019 Federal Election Candidate Questionnaire

October 14, 2019
BCSEA Victoria Chapter

Thirty candidates are vying for the four local constituencies of:

Victoria,
Saanich-Gulf Islands,
Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke and
Cowichan-Malahat-Langford

If you want to support a candidate committed to climate action and sustainable energy, our questionnaire may help.

We focus on “green” spending and subsidies because tax dollar spending is one of the most powerful ways the federal government affects climate and energy policy. We also address support for municipal climate action planning and moving to a green economy.

Message from the Board Chair

Greetings to my fellow sustainable energy ... enthusiasts?  Evangelists? True believers? The BCSEA is a unique organization in the sustainable energy field.  We are not clean energy producers, nor are we building system experts.  While many of us are engineers or technical experts in our professional capacities, that's not we do within the BCSEA.
