Background

Developing strategies to address energy demand and supply in Kamloops is critical to community sustainability for a number of reasons. Stable, reliable, and affordable energy supplies are important to economic and social development in a community. However, producing and consuming energy results in environmental consequences such as greenhouse gas emissions, ecological impacts, and air quality concerns, among others.

The supply of energy, particularly petroleum products, is becoming a more pressing concern. Looking forward, communities that can better provide clean and secure energy supplies will experience greater economic opportunities and a higher degree of sustainability.

Currently, energy on a per capita basis for residential purposes in Kamloops is amongst the highest level for communities of a similar size. This is also reflected in energy use for transportation purposes in Kamloops. In 2008, the City of Kamloops spent approximately $6.3 million for energy for buildings, infrastructure, fleet vehicles and equipment.

The City of Kamloops is a signatory to the Climate Action Charter. This requires that the City become carbon neutral in its municipal operations by 2012. Achieving carbon neutrality will require that the City address how it uses energy in its municipal operations.
