YCS's goal for this energy intensive sector is zero greenhouse gas emissions. Reduced energy demand and waste by strengthening building codes and standards and retrofitting existing building stock will get us part way there. Electricity and biomass can replace imported fossil fuels with local renewable energy resources for space heating.
Transportation: the Yukon's most energy-intensive sector. We have far to go to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption in transportation. Supporting local energy and food production will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from trucking freight. Getting people out of our cars onto buses and bikes will have other benefits to society above GHG reduction.
