The Province has amended the Greenhouse Gas Reduction (Clean Energy) Regulation to increase the production and use of renewable gas as well as green and waste hydrogen in British Columbia, generating jobs and economic opportunities while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
B.C. is the first province in Canada to make these kinds of changes allowing for the increased production of renewable gas, including hydrogen. The amendments support the Province’s upcoming hydrogen strategy, which will include ambitious goals to increase the production and use of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen to help achieve climate targets under CleanBC and create jobs and opportunities in the clean energy and technology sectors.
