The Province of British Columbia is creating a comprehensive energy policy to supervise petroleum and gas projects.

According to a news statement, the new regulation aims to maintain B.C.’s climate targets while providing a platform to advance clean energy and tech advancements.

To accomplish 2030 goals, the province’s government will implement an emissions cap and all new LNG projects in or entering the Environmental Assessment process will be required to pass a test and submit a strategy to reach net zero by 2030. They will also create a clean energy and major projects office and a BC Hydro task force to facilitate the electrification of the province’s economy.

“Our new energy action framework will help us meet our climate targets and build a better future for all British Columbians, especially our kids and grandkids, in a clean-energy economy,” said B.C. Premier David Eby.

In April, the province will begin discussions on the final draft of the regulatory cap on emissions, with the goal of completing the consultations by the end of the year and implementing the cap as quickly as possible.
