Tools for Municipal Governments in BC to Implement a Target of 100% Renewable Energy by 2050

Prepared for British Columbia Sustainable Energy Association

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of British Columbia’s municipal jurisdiction to achieve 100% renewable energy (“100% RE”) commitments. In response to the threat posed by climate change and the growing movement to transition from fossil fuels, a number of municipalities on Southern Vancouver Island have committed to 100% RE by 2050. Many jurisdictions internationally, including local governments, have committed to and are striving to achieve 100% RE targets.
