In June 2010, FortisBC Energy Inc. formerly Terasen Gas, provided funding to hire an Energy Specialist to support the Energy Manager with demand-side energy management initiatives.
Natural gas is typically used for heating buildings and hot water around campus. We take energy efficiency into consideration when upgrading gas-fired equipment as it has both financial and environmental benefits. Under the Public Sector Energy Conservation Agreement the University pays for carbon offsets on all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at a rate of $25/tonne. Reducing natural gas consumption, responsible for 94% of our carbon footprint, is both economically and ecologically valuable.
