Excerpt from Summaries:  Sunrise Session – Reducing GHG Emissions through Renewable Transportation Fuels: 7:15am to 8:00am Michael Weedon, Executive Director – BC Bioenergy Network Paul Kariya, Executive Director – Clean Energy BC

BC’s transportation industry is a large contributor to GHG emissions, and presents an incredible opportunity for the renewable transport fuels industry. The BC Bioenergy Network is focusing on low carbon fuels and integrated solutions. They support companies in the technology development pathway, from lab bench to commercial scale, including Diacarbon and other companies. The challenge they face however is the need for a huge transition to achieve BC’s target of 80% reduction in GHG emissions from 2007 levels.

Paul Kariya from Clean Energy BC echoes this sentiment, emphasizing the importance of partnerships and relationships between key players in the supply chain, such as First Nation, ENGOs and BC Hydro. The opportunity for First Nations engagement can drastically improve the interest of the BC and Federal government, providing them jobs, rural development and an alternative to diesel-based generator power.

To make this transition to low carbon fuels, Michael and Paul outlined three key government tasks to increase biofuels:

1. Encourage technology deployment with cellulosic feedstocks, with drop-in diesel the most likely candidate

2. Articulate a policy for long term maintenance of a carbon tax

3. Create a biofuels incentive program to change the infrastructure of Canada’s energy sector, relying more on renewable energy  READ MORE
