Wind Energy Monitoring at Yellowknife (2015-2017)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at CN Hill (approximately 130 km from Yellowknife) for two years. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Yellowknife area. Wind data will be collected using instruments that measure wind speed, direction, and temperature. At CN Hill, the sensors will be installed on an existing Northwestel Tower. Tw...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Inuvik High Point (2013-2015)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at the Inuvik high point (approximately 6 km northeast of the Inuvik airport) for two years. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Wind data will be collected using instruments on a wind tower that will be installed at the site. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analy...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Storm Hills: 2012-2014
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at Storm Hills for two years, as part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Wind data will be collected using an existing infrastructure (New North Networks tower) at the site. A desktop study was recently completed for Inuvik and the surrounding area at the request of the Minister of Environme...


Backyard Gardening - A viable food production solution for Yellowknife?
Principal Investigator: Lizotte, Amy R
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The research seeks to identify a practical and tangible solution to localizing Yellowknife food and to empower a slower food movement in Yellowknife. The literature review will highlight success stories from NWT’s past and current food initiatives as well as other remote communities’ food successes, while drawing from the experiential knowledge and observations of interviewees. The interviews with...


Ethical Value and Market Value in a Canadian Wild Food Network
Principal Investigator: Gordon, Dylan
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: This research has two goals: 1) to determine how harvesters of wild mushrooms operating in the Northwest Territories find, harvest, process and sell them; and, 2) to determine how this process impacts the social, environmental and economic interests of local communities and the land. The method is called ethnographic participant observation. This means to observe the actions of the study partic...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Thor Lake 2012
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to continue quantifying the wind energy potential for the economic feasibility of installing a wind turbine as a part of the Avalon Rare Metals Inc. development near Thor Lake. Due to equipment problems, no data was collected during the winter months of the last two years. The monitoring equipment has now been replaced and we aim to capture this im...


Solar Irradiance Monitoring in Jean Marie River and Fort Providence
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011
Summary: To measure solar irradiance levels in Jean Marie River and Ft. Providence, in order to support pre-feasibility studies on the use of solar energy in those communities. The project engineer will travel to Jean Marie River and Fort Providence to start monitoring solar irradiance in the two communities. The monitoring units will likely be placed on a GNWT building in Fort Providence, and on the ba...


Taiga Adventure Camp Feasibility Study
Principal Investigator: Stirling, Mark
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of the project will be to evaluate the feasibility of the new offering. To determine the feasibility of the project the market, organizational capability, financial implications and strategic alliances will be evaluated. As part of the market analysis a survey will be conducted to evaluate the demand for the offering from the target demographic. To examine the market, descrip...


Wind Energy Monitoring in Norman Wells 2009-2010
Principal Investigator: Pinard, Jean-Paul
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 1279. The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to quantify the wind energy potential for the economic feasibility of building a wind farm in Norman Wells, a remote community that is dependant on gas-electric generation. The wind monitoring equipment was installed in September 2008 and this site will continue to...


Wind Energy Monitoring in Tuktoyaktuk NWT
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to quantify wind energy potential for the economic feasibility of building a wind farm in Tuktoyaktuk. This year the proposed project will involve maintaining data collection at the wind monitoring site, as well as data analysis and reporting. The Tuktoyaktuk wind monitor will visit the wind tower site monthly and maintain the monitoring site e...
