Funding has been found to be the most effective processes for the sake of promoting the consumption of EV’s in the Province B.C. A province that has been the cause of climate change and hot weather recently, which caused a large number of deaths. However, having said that its British Columbia which is rising fast apart from Quebec province. Significantly, in consumption of the Electric Vehicles. This is something which has been a dream for the province and its inhabitants. However, they are growing in awareness levels for the increased consumption of EV’s, preferring public transport. Furthermore, cycling and promoting walks. Thus, as a matter of fact environmental protection has been termed as something that demands extra energy & funding from the locals. Hence, apart from more commitments.
Apart from an increased role from many different stakeholders the community groups and the local governments throughout the beautiful province can receive funding. These are funding received through COIP or Community Outreach Incentive Program. Main aim is to create a larger level awareness in people through educating them to switch to EV’s. The pilot program is a useful one as it highlights the huge advantages of EV’s consumption for the people and the environment. The environment of B.C. is a good mix of the scenic beauty, i.e. landscapes and urban life, i.e. cities with excellent infrastructure. According to the Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, there are efforts going on in B.C. on a daily basis for reductions in Carbon emissions and using clean energy to move around in the province. These are efforts under the Govt. master plan for clean energy known as CleanBC. The targets are supported by funding as well as the province is providing $121,000 through COIP.
THE COIP & CTTP PILOT PROGRAM TARGETS FOR B.C.:
The COIP, i.e. Community Outreach Incentive Program and CTTP, i.e. Clean Transportation Targets and Planning are the two active pilot programs in B.C. The targets for the two programs are aligned until the next 12-13 years from today and the Provincial Govt. of British Columbia is working in alliance and parallel to the efforts of the Canadian Govt. Hence, as the Govt. of Canada is far more active and committed to promote EV’s and reduce carbon emissions in all of Canada. However, they have taken a positive start from B.C. which is the province that stands out in its consumption of EV’s on a yearly basis.
Hence, both the Pilot programs, i.e. COIP and CTTP have recently released their road-map until 2035, i.e. 13 years from today. Originally, it started from 2021, therefore, it was in the first place a 14 years targeted program with high profile environmental goals and agendas. The actions includes primarily strengthening the Zero-Emissions Vehicles, i.e. ZEV’s (ACT) to require 26% of light-duty vehicle sales to be ZEV by the year 2026. Furthermore, it will be increased to 90% by the year 2030 and 100% by the year 2035. This is something that can practically be achieved if the pilot programs stick to their mandates and targets made for the 14 year period.
A sustainable future for B.C. is the dream of the Govt. of Canada and B.C. and CleanBC is a pathway forward that relates to this thought. On the pathway to this program the efforts needs to be more prosperous and balanced for a sustainable future.
Obviously, the CleanBC program at the same time supports the Govt.’s commitment to climate action for the sake of meeting B.C. emission targets. At the same time mutual efforts with the Govt. for building a cleaner and a stronger economy for everyone.
SOME VITAL ACHIEVEMENTS & KEY FACTS REGARDS TO THE TARGET PROGRAMS:
As a matter of fact, this is true that B.C. is a province that already leads the rest of the country in transitioning to the EV’s. This is a great achievement for the Province with 65,000 light-duty EV’s already on the roads of B.C. Apart from these national stats. The province B.C. also enjoys some international facts and figures. Surprisingly, indeed the province was the first place in the whole world apart from Canada to have a 100% (ZEV) law, i.e. Zero-Emission vehicles.
The COIP or community outreach incentive program is a program that is funded by the province B.C. while it is administered by Plug In B.C .Obviously, this is a program from the Fraser Basin Council Society.
Some mandatory facts regards to the roadmap for 2035 includes a huge focus on efficiency-first transportation actions. This not only includes the consumption of EV’s but also promoting alternative modes of transportation including walking, cycling, and transit, i.e. commuting to work and personal activities. The road-map comprehensively demands alternate commuting levels to increase to 30% by the year 2030, and then a 10% increase every decade until 2050.
The efforts made in the province B.C. are synchronous to the efforts made in the rest of the Canada. However, the efforts precedes the rest of the country including Quebec due to the flexibility achieved by British Columbia province and the citizens in past. The general level of awareness for citizens of British Columbia is far higher than the rest of the North American country. A country that demands larger levels of success regards to reduction in greenhouse emissions and reduction in Climate change. However, there is always a room for improvement.
