Sept. 22: GHG Emissions Declining in Atlantic Canada
Posted On September 28, 2015
The Atlantic Provinces Economic Council’s report card, Declining Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Atlantic Canada, shows that GHG emissions dropped 26% since 2004 in the Atlantic region compared to a 4% drop nationally. PEI highlights from the report:
- A 19% decline in emissions over the period due to lower direct soil emissions, which includes lower fertilizer use
- The province’s installed wind capacity is up to 204 megawatts
- The Office of Energy Efficiency has helped close to 10,000 Island homes and businesses conduct energy audits and/or complete energy retrofits to reduce their energy consumption. Over the past five years, these programs have reduced GHGs by about 40,000 tonnes.
