Global Electrification Summit – Spring Conference & AGM

Global Electrification Now = Low Carbon Future Summit

Climate change is disruptive. We can all agree on that. But there is a path forward where we can rise above the disruptions: electrification. It’s the best way to bridge the gap to meet our climate goals, which is why the Clean Energy Association of BC (CEBC) is hosting our first ever Global Electrification Summit.

BC’s brand is “supernatural” and associated with a clean, green environment. BC’s heritage hydro and the 120 small hydro, wind, solar, biogas and biomass projects in every region of the province already provide the province with one of the greenest, lowest-cost electricity systems in the world. This clean energy gives us a phenomenal global competitive advantage, enabling us to create some of the lowest carbon products and services in the international marketplace. We’re already producing the lowest carbon aluminum and every cup of coffee made in BC with our clean electricity is ultra-low carbon.

On December 12, 2015, the international community respond to the threat of climate change by agreeing to keep the temperature rise this century below 2 degrees Celsius. As part of this global effort, the BC government has committed to a 40% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030, which equates to a 23 MT GHG reduction. As BC designs our climate change strategy and the energy roadmap comes together, electrification sits at the very center. Simply put, this is the transition from fossil fuels to using electricity for transportation, heating buildings, and the industrial sectors.

We welcome your participation in our Global Electrification Summit on June 14th in Vancouver.
