'Off-grid' homes need dozens, 131 Tesla batteries, BC researchers say
Powering your home with solar panels to go off the grid may seem like an ideal way to save money and combat climate change. But just how feasible is it?
New detailed report: Leveraging BC's wave energy advantage
British Columbia now has enough detailed information about the height, frequency and direction of its coastal waves to start developing and testing wave energy converters in the ocean, according to a new report released at an energy conference at the University of Victoria today.
Seeing is believing: Why thermal imaging can inspire home retrofits
Being able to see where heat is escaping from your own home is a powerful—and underutilized—way to encourage home energy retrofits, especially when those infrared images are packaged with other incentives and promoted within your community.
Are BC electricity imports a realistic solution to Alberta's emissions reduction plan?
Recent proposals to use British Columbia hydropower as a substitute for coal power in Alberta should be viewed in the context of new research showing that in the long-term, BC has little energy to spare, and that an
