Energy Efficiency Career Hub

We’re welcoming partners from across Canada to help shape the recently launched Energy Efficiency Career Hub. This is a space to share your expertise and collaborate. Join us in promoting energy efficiency as a meaningful and rewarding career path.

FortisBC’s Diversified Pathways

FortisBC has worked collaboratively with government to deliver on the promise of CleanBC and in 2018 we released the Clean Growth Pathway report that sets out an ambitious vision for decarbonization to 2050 – in line with the provincial government’s decarbonization goals. We also have an interim target to reduce customer emissions 30 percent by 2030 (30BY30), one of North America’s most ambitious GHG reduction goals for a natural gas utility.

Using FortisBC’s established electric and natural gas infrastructure to invest in innovative solutions like renewable natural gas and hydrogen will be critical in BC achieving its ambitious 2050 emissions reduction target. That is why we have conducted research on Pathways for British Columbia to achieve its GHG Reduction Goals, a study that recognizes the importance of a diversity of energy systems to meet our shared, local GHG reduction goals.
