The fund supports cost-shared infrastructure projects that focus on management of renewable energy, improved access to clean-energy transportation, improved energy efficiency of buildings and the generation of clean energy.
Projects must result in measurable greenhouse gas reductions (GHG) and climate change mitigation in B.C. communities.
Eligible projects will improve or build new tangible physical infrastructure, primarily for public use and benefit. Examples include installing public ZEV charging stations, on-site anaerobic digesters in communities, or retrofitting public buildings.
Projects must meet at least one of the following outcomes to be considered eligible under the program:
- Outcome 1: Increased capacity to manage renewable energy
- Outcome 2: Increased access to clean energy transportation
- Outcome 3: Increased energy efficiency of buildings
- Outcome 4: Increased generation of clean energy
Projects should be completed by March 31, 2026.
