Report: Renewable Energy Partnerships and Project Economics

Research supporting Indigenous–utility partnerships and power purchase agreements

From the Pembina Institute website:

This report, funded by both the Pembina Foundation and Canada’s Mitacs Accelerate Program, examines strategies for enhancing collaboration and partnership between Indigenous power proponents and utilities and territorial / federal governments. The research is focused on remote Indigenous communities in the three territories. It highlights significant barriers that restrict meaningful and respectful partnerships, are delaying and blocking Independent power production policies and are impeding fair power purchase rates. It suggests solutions for supporting Indigenous-led renewable energy projects and shifting the paradigm so that Indigenous communities, businesses and governments have more prospects to explore and development renewable energy projects on their lands.
