Featuring Peter Russel, the City of Surrey’s Sustainability Manager. Join us on July 6 at the SFU Harbour Centre – Room 2270, 515 West Hastings Street – From 12:00 to 1:00 pm
On May 30, 2011, the City of Surrey, British Columbia passed a bylaw requiring that all new gasoline stations built in Surrey sell, in addition to traditional gasoline, diesel and propane, at least one “alternative fuel”. For the purpose of the bylaw, alternative fuels include compressed natural gas, hydrogen, and electric vehicle recharging stations. The new bylaw is consistent with Surrey’s broad push towards environmental sustainability, which includes such measures as implementing a fleet of green municipal vehicles and providing hydrogen fueling stations.
Peter Russel will share the City’s thoughts on the definitions of alternative fuels, trigger points for what constitutes a ‘new’ fuel station and the policy/incentive mechanisms they are currently investigating.
