What is The Clean Energy Association of British Columbia (CEBC)?

Clean Energy BC aims to provide cost-effective electricity through the efficient & environmentally responsible development of the Province’s energy resources.

The Voice of Independent Power

CEBC (and its predecessor IPPBC) has been the voice of the Clean Energy industry and independent power for 25 years.

Our Core Principles

Our core principles are to gain and maintain social license for the sector by working in a transparent, trustworthy, and credible manner with all segments of BC’s communities.

Over 130 members

With over 130 members, CEBC represents the vast majority of the clean energy operating and development companies in the province, as well as the suppliers, contractors and service providers to BC’s clean energy sector.

Technological Diversity

Our members include representatives from technologies such as small (run-of-river) hydro, wind, natural gas, biomass, and biogas and emerging technologies such as geothermal, solar, ocean/tidal and biofuels.

Effective Advocacy

We are active in effective advocacy with all levels of government, BC Hydro, First Nations, and the public.

Promotion of Understanding

We promote a better understanding of the Clean Energy sector, its potential and its benefits.

Our Mission

Our overarching priority at CEBC is to support BC’s transition to low-carbon energy through the development of effective climate policy and clean energy electrification. We will do this at a greater speed, lower financial risk and with less cost than any new alternative; thus providing the BC ratepayers, BC Hydro, and the BC government with affordable and best value clean energy.

Our Mandate

To grow the Association, recognizing that through a robust and active membership, BC’s Clean Energy sector will grow and thrive along with it.


To work collaboratively with BC’s First Nations because we recognize the transformative economic opportunity clean energy projects offer both First Nations and rural communities through royalties, shared revenues and taxes, and jobs and investments.
