Wind Energy Monitoring at Yellowknife (2015-2017)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2017 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 (2015-2017)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2017 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...


Community Renewable Energy Projects in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Lacoursiere, Marie-Soleil
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to analyze three case studies regarding the role that utility companies have played in the removal of barriers towards the implementation of renewable energy projects in the North. The Principal Investigator will do a literature review online through the University of Saskatchewan databases and also conduct interviews of representatives of Arctic Energy Allianc...


Northern Sustainable House Data Analysis
Principal Investigator: Zmeureanu, Radu
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The analysis will be done on a data set that covers at least the time interval from October 2014 to November 2015. The following steps are proposed: 1. Pre-process of data: data quality, identification of outliers, missing data, faulty sensors. 2. Development of a working good data file. 3. Identification of the pattern of energy use such as the hourly, daily and monthly profiles. 4. Develo...


Delivery System For Pre-Engineered Manufactured Self-Sustaining (PEMaSS) Housing To Remote Regions
Principal Investigator: Thirunavukarasu, Asok
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective of this research is to identify current state of housing in Yellowknife. This field research should give insights on window-wall ratio, window type, typical R-values, typical construction assemblies, mechanical systems used and delivery process for housing. This will help benchmark the current energy and future performance of housing in the region. As well, the objective of this fiel...


Pacific Northwest Economic Region - Roadmap to Resilient, Net-Zero Buildings and Deep Energy Retrofits
Principal Investigator: Montgomery, James
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objectives of this study are to develop a roadmap to identify key policies and technologies that allow for net-zero emissions buildings to be constructed in the northwest of Canada and the United States. Given the diversity of jurisdictions in in the region, the “strategies” contained within the Roadmap will aim to catalyze new legislation or policy in each jurisdiction by highlighting key opp...


Inuit & scientific knowledge and non-renewable and renewable energy development
Principal Investigator: Johnson, Noor
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The Principal Investigator (PI) will examine how different people involved in energy development decision-making, including residents, environmental organizations, government, land claims organizations, and corporations, perceive the risks and possible benefits of different energy options. In particular, it will focus on the role of different sources of knowledge (science, Inuit knowledge) and ho...


A Search for Sustainable Energy Future for the Northwest Territories: The Role of Policy Integration
Principal Investigator: Rayner, Jeremy
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: This study intends to: 1) contribute to the theoretical understanding of the concepts of integrated policy design and identify the factors that facilitate or impede integrated policy-making in the Canadian context; 2) provide the insights on how NWT consensus government works, including implications for integrated policy-making; and, 3) identify existing barriers to renewable energy penetration...


Report on the State of Domestic Energy Provision in the Arctic
Principal Investigator: Mallett, Alexandra
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1) provide a comprehensive, interdisciplinary ‘snapshot’ of domestic energy provision in the Arctic, 2) provide a foundation to help guide future research efforts regarding sustainable energy in Canada’s Arctic; and, 3) inform policy debates. The proposed report seeks to inform practitioners, key policy makers, academics, and Non-Governmental O...


River ice study
Principal Investigator: Boguski, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The research team are seeking to understand the characteristics of the river during breakup to see if hydrokinetic energy may be an option. The research team will be placing a sonar device on the bottom of the Mackenzie River to collect data on the ice. The sonar device will be retrieved after approximately one month’s time. The research team are seeking to understand the characteristics of ...
