Alt Fuels Included in Rebuilding Resilient B.C. Plan (Ind. Report)
Pembina Institute
Date: 2020-07-27
In Vancouver, the Canadian non-profit think-tank Pembina Institute is urging the Province of B.C. to use its recovery and stimulus plans to help create a low-carbon economy that generates jobs and protects the environment.

To that end, the Institute's Rebuilding a Resilient B.C. action plan recommends: B.C. positions itself to be a leading supplier of renewable fuels and invest in active (alternative , low-carbon) transportation as well as provide funding for capital and operating costs for transit. It also calls for the province to set a path to become leading producer and consumer of low-carbon and zero-carbon hydrogen.

In Vancouver, Natural Resource Canada (NRC) has announced a $600,000 investment in the British Columbia-based Pembina Institute to support two energy efficiency retrofit projects in Vancouver and to support future energy efficiency retrofits in other Canadian municipalities.

As part of the $600,000 investment, $200,000 is earmarked for the Affordable Housing Renewal Pilot Program for energy retrofits to B.C.'s social housing stock. In partnership with the B.C. Non-Profit Housing Association and the City of Vancouver, the program will retrofit up to five social housing complexes on the Lower Mainland, according to Natural Resources Canada. The remaining $400,000 will go toward five to eight additional Canadian municipalities looking to develop strategies to retrofit their multi-unit residential building stock, indicates the release.
