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...


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...
