British Columbia could be energy self-sufficient

A new report titled "The Endless Energy Project" reveals that the Canadian province of British Columbia could be self sufficient in energy by 2025, using a combination of hydro-electricity, domestic and neighbourhood fuel production and electricity generation. The report identified that 14 per cent of domestic energy can be generated in the home by fitting all new buildings with the capacity to capture wind, solar and bio-mass from the home. It also projected increasing localisation of energy sources to reduce losses and capture the energy from bio-mass entering the waste stream. British Columbia generates a significant portion of its electricity frin hydrioeklectric schemes.
