UBC Achieves E3 Platinum Rating – Again!

University of British Columbia (UBC) Building Operations Dept. was Canada’s first E3 Platinum Rated fleet back in 2013. Under the leadership of Fleet Manager, Steve Henzel, UBC has done it again, by achieving E3 Platinum in 2017.

Carbon Neutral Fleet

Steve and his UBC Fleet team leveraged excellent telematics data to manage, target, and optimize fleet vehicles case-by-case. This, and other innovations led to a 7.5% reduction in fuel use for the 2016 period. In E3, the Platinum level is reserved for carbon-neutral fleets. Emissions offsets are purchased by UBC, making the university carbon-neutral.

FortisBC Achieves E3 Silver

fortisbc-img.jpg In October, FortisBC achieved its E3 Silver Level Rating. The FortisBC fleet achieved a GHG reduction of 278 MT or 3.2% between 2015 and 2016 through initiatives such as driver training, fuel-switching and the use of telematics.

FortisBC delivers approximately 21 per cent of the total energy consumed in British Columbia, Canada which is the most energy delivered by any utility in the province. Whether delivering electricity, natural gas or propane, its more than 2,200 employees serve approximately 1.1 million customers in 135 communities.

One of the company’s initiatives is Renewable Natural Gas. Farms, landfills and other suppliers like the City of Surrey have teamed up with FortisBC to capture methane (CH4) from decomposing organic waste, which would otherwise escape into the atmosphere. This methane, also known as biogas, is purified to make Renewable Natural Gas, which can power vehicles.

Our congratulations to Fortis BC for its E3 achievement.
