GNWT High Point Wind Project - geotechnical investigations
Principal Investigator: Sullivan, Grant
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Geotechnical investigations are proposed to identify the depth of bedrock and other materials underlying the permafrost onsite. The results of the geotechnical investigations will be used to determine the access route, the project location, and the turbine installation technique. This activity will include drilling of boreholes and collection of samples for testing. Thirteen boreholes are plann...


Predicting the Future(s) of Renewable Energy in Canada's Arctic: MEOPAR Year of Polar Prediction Project
Principal Investigator: Monahan, Adam
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1. Study how wind power and solar irradiance in the north will change in the future; 2. Working with GNWT and Power Corp, use an instrumented tower to understand the relationship between wind and solar power with larger-scale weather variations and to analyze problems such as mechanical stresses and ice loading; 3. Provide input to refine near-surface proc...


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...


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...


Renewable energies: Design and Testing Zero-head Micro hydro turbine,Solar/Hydrogen fuel cell testing
Principal Investigator: Mutua, Daniel
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: Objectives are to: 1. Design and test zero-head hydro-electric turbines under low flow, i.e. less than 1 m/sec velocity, for the purpose of utilizing locally available renewable hydro resources; 2. Solar/Hydrogen fuel cell testing; 3. Evaluate the feasibility of an NWT-based commercial venture to manufacture and sell these turbines, and/or integrated energy systems. In rivers where ther...


In-Stream Turbines for N'dulee Crossing Ferry Camp
Principal Investigator: May, Glenn
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of this study are: 1. To evaluate the use of hydrokinetic power generation in the Northwest Territories for use in off-grid applications, 2. To demonstrate cost-savings and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions power for a ferry camp (N'dulee Crossing, about 80 km WNW of Fort Simpson on the way to Wrigley), 3. Based on the results of the N'dulee crossing operation in 2010, evalua...
