Transportation is the Yukon’s most energy-intensive sector. This is not just transporting food, fuel and other consumer goods. The greatest amount of fossil fuel use in the territory comes from you and me driving ourselves and our kids from home to school, work and other activities.
Reducing transportation demand and single occupancy vehicle trips through better active transportation trail networks and public transit will help. For what’s left, electric vehicles powered by local renewable energy sources will improve our air quality and reduce emissions associated with driving. Government and utility incentives and rebates can help consumers make this choice.
