Speak up: Yukon Energy Survey on new Diesel/LNG

We are deeply disappointed to see Yukon Energy deploying more thermal energy without comparable progress on renewable energy projects.

We encourage everyone to have their say by filling out Yukon Energy’s survey here!

Of the options given, we strongly prefer diesel to LNG. Diesel is better suited to supporting the integration of renewables and avoids the fracking and methane emissions of LNG. We strongly prefer rental generators to purchased units, to minimize the Yukon's long term investment in fossil fuel infrastructure.

Thinking beyond this survey, YCS calls on Government of Yukon to direct Yukon Energy to urgently begin deploying the conservation and renewable energy projects necessary to achieve territory-wide greenhouse gas reductions consistent with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s research on limiting global heating to 1.5°C. The IPCC is a United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. Their research shows that we need to reduce greenhouse gases by 50% by 2030 and 100% by 2050.
