The health of our planet depends on reducing our energy consumption and shifting over to sustainable and renewable energy sources.
Buildings account for approximately 30% of our national energy use. In Vancouver about 50% of all our greenhouse gas emissions can be attributed to buildings. By providing information and knowledge on energy conservation and renewable energy SPEC aims to get individuals and businesses interested and invested in energy conservation and renewable energy. SPEC offers an opportunity for groups and individuals to view and learn about practical, long-term energy solutions to climate change.
SPEC’s Energy Committee works to educate individuals, businesses and children about renewable energy and energy saving methods to reduce their energy footprint.
