Predicting the Future(s) of Renewable Energy in Canada's Arctic: MEOPAR Year of Polar Prediction Project
Principal Investigator: Monahan, Adam
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objectives of this research 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-sur...


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...


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...


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...


Wind Energy Monitoring in Wekweeti: 2010 - 2012
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring project is to quantify Wekweeti’s wind energy resources. The Aurora Research Institute recently completed a desktop study concerning wind energy in Wekweeti. Computer modelling and analysis of data from nearby weather stations indicates that the wind speeds in the community may be strong enough to support the use of wind energy in Wekweeti at the proposed proj...


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...
