USask’s Renewable Energy in Northern, Remote and Indigenous Communities Flagship Program’s approach to renewable energy transition, based on the values of northern and Indigenous communities, offers new scholarly insight to understanding the multiple dimensions of ‘sustainable energy security.’

This research is starting now as the Flagship Program is working in collaboration with WWF and FNPA to analyze Renewables for Nature webtool, a method for siting renewable energy projects at the community level. As part of this collaboration, First Nations Power Authority, brings local knowledge and expertise about community energy needs and opportunities that will guide research for optimal local value creation.

The 2018 FNPA Indigenous Clean Energy Forum on November 21st is bringing together Indigenous Leaders in Renewable Energy to showcase expertise and achievements towards sharing best practices and generating a dialogue on common renewable energy priorities for Indigenous People.

At this year’s forum, SENS renewable energy lead, Greg Poelzer will speak about the Renewable Energy Flagship Program and core team researcher, Bram Noble will lead a panel discussion.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
