Toward a Positive Energy Futurein Northern and Remote Communities Summary Report
.QUEST, in collaboration with and with funding from Natural Resources Canada, hosted a workshop in Yellowknife to explore the unique energy challenges and opportunities of northern and remote communities. Having successfully brought together more than 60 First Nation, territorial, provincial, and federal governments; regional indigenous organizations; community representatives, utilities; and, local industry stakeholders, the workshop was divided into three organizing themes: Capacity Building and Investment, Energy Use and Energy Efficiency, and Energy Production and Supply.
Based on the discussions, a series of key messages and considerations were developed for policymakers that were presented at the 2018 Energy and Mines Ministers’ Conference in Iqaluit.
