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 ...

Energy Resilience in Northern Communities
Principal Investigator: Keyte, Lawrence
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: This research project is designed to answer the following key research questions: 1) How can northern communities succeed in achieving greater energy resilience? 2) What factors influence (facilitate or challenge) northern communities moving forward with sustainable energy initiatives? 3) How might these facilitating factors be most effectively applied to other northern communities? The ob...

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. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analysis will be necessary to confirm this prediction and the viab...

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...

2005 Fish and Fish Habitat Surveys for the Nailii Hydro Project
Principal Investigator: Buckland, Laurie L
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The Wha Ti Charter Community proposes to develop a run-of-river hydro facility on the La Martre river. The isolated community would like to replace its current diesel generator with a more sustainable, energy efficient and less costly system. An environm...

Licence #2697
Principal Investigator: Singh, T.
Licenced Year(s): 1981
Summary: To cut 100 trees in 4 areas; (approx. 60 each of 6 species - white spruce, black spruce, jackpine, aspen, balsam poplar and larch) (total 400) to serve as an indicator of which species will have the maximum potential for energy (Biomass Survey)....
