Happy Anniversary! Celebrating 20 years of energizing dialogue.


PEIA and Its Mission

The Pacific Energy Innovation Association (PEIA) is an independent, non-profit association of energy professionals incorporated under the Societies Act of British Columbia.


To initiate and promote discussion and action for energy innovation, efficiency and sustainability.

PEIA offers objective, thought-provoking dialogue on energy supply, demand and the associated technologies and policies required by sustainable economies in the near- and long-term.

While its efforts are focused on British Columbia and Western Canada, PEIA seeks opportunities for collaboration with organizations in other jurisdictions to further mutual objectives. PEIA recognizes that most issues and challenges are global, but solutions must be regional to meet local economic and environmental needs.
