The Community Clean Energy Branch develops policy and program initiatives to decarbonize community energy systems through the implementation of clean energy projects in communities across British Columbia, including grid-connected local governments, Indigenous communities, and non-grid connected remote communities, each of which can involve significant negotiation of public/private sector financial agreements. The Branch is highly interactive with all levels of government, Indigenous Peoples and a multitude of differing stakeholders, including utilities, technology developers, consulting companies and non-government organizations.

The branch is embedded in the Electricity and Alternative Energy Division (EAED) within the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources (Ministry). The EAED is mandated to develop and implement legislation, policies and programs to support all forms of electrical power generation and transmission; and, to lead the decarbonization of British Columbia’s energy systems through alternative energy resources and technologies, energy efficiency measures and programs, innovative market transformation strategies, and economic development initiatives with local governments and First Nations. The EAED plays an integral role in contributing to achieving government’s energy, economic and environmental ambitions through an ongoing and extensive working relationship with other key ministries, governments, utilities, Crown agencies, academia and the private sector. Fostering and leveraging this network of relationships allows the EAED to accelerate delivery of its mandate, identify synergies and efficiencies through coordinated activity, and raise government’s profile and credibility.

Within the EAED, the Alternative Energy unit is comprised of six Branches and has responsibility for energy and decarbonisation policies, programs and initiatives related to:

  • Clean transportation;
  • Clean energy solutions for communities;
  • Energy efficiency and conservation in the built environment;
  • Renewable and low carbon fuels;
  • Industrial decarbonization; and,
  • Innovative Clean Energy Fund Special Account which supports the Province's energy, economic, environmental and greenhouse gas reduction priorities, and advances B.C.'s clean energy sector.

The Ministry, which is responsible for British Columbia’s electricity, alternative energy, oil, natural gas and related infrastructure, and the province’s mining and mineral exploration sectors. These sectors are made up of diverse interests that explore for and produce oil, natural gas, coal and other valuable minerals and that develop electricity generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure, clean or renewable energy sources, including biomass, biogas, hydrogen, geothermal, hydro, solar, ocean, wind and low-carbon transportation fuels, and advance energy efficiency. Through teamwork and positive working relationships with its clients and stakeholders, the Ministry facilitates thriving, safe, environmentally responsible and competitive natural gas, oil, energy and mining sectors in order to create jobs and economic growth in communities across the province.
