FortisBC will be using renewable natural gas to help it reach its goal of reducing its greenhouse gas profile by 30 per cent by 2030.

The gas utility figures renewable natural gas and green hydrogen will help the company lower its carbon profile while it continues to use its natural gas infrastructure. Some infrastructure changes will be necessary with hydrogen, however. Thirteen offtake contracts have been signed by FortisBC with Canadian renewable natural gas projects.

Among the projects is the construction of a new plant in Fruitvale, B.C. that will make renewable natural gas from wood waste. FortisBC has also signed a contract with EverGen to purchase upwards of 173,000 gigajoules of renewable natural gas annually for injection into its natural gas system.
