At a carbon intensity level equal to or even less than electric vehicle power, FortisBC's Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) has been approved by the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources for inclusion within the province's Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). The LCFS supports the responsible development of B.C.'s low-carbon natural gas resources to provide domestic solutions to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels.
"FortisBC is committed to advancing a low-carbon future for the province by tackling emissions from the transportation sector," says Douglas Stout, vice-president, external relations and market development, FortisBC. "The inclusion of RNG as an approved fuel under the LCFS provides transportation companies with both an environmental and an economic reason to move to natural gas as a fuel of choice."
