Energy & Transportation Team
The health of our planet depends on reducing our energy consumption and shifting to sustainable and renewable energy sources.
SPEC’s Energy & Transportation Team works to educate individuals, businesses, communities, and children about renewable energy, energy conservation and sustainable modes of transportation.
We also advocate at a municipal and provincial level for energy and transportation policies that move us toward energy conservation, responsible energy production and a healthy and just urban environment.
Monthly meetings are free and open to the public. We discuss current projects, upcoming events, and share new ideas.

Co-Chair, SPEC Board Member
For over 50 years, SPEC has been committed to promoting energy conservation and sustainable transportation in the Lower Mainland.
We have opposed new large-scale power generation infrastructure as well as highway expansion mega projects. We worked to establish an Energy Demonstration Centre in the 1980’s which focused on educating the public about the benefits and feasibility of solar power generation.
