Integrating Renewable Energy
in Remote Communities
Dr. Michael Ross
NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Northern Energy Innovation, Yukon Research Centre, Yukon College
Sunday, February 25, 2018
7:30 pm, Beringia Centre, Whitehorse
Remote communities across the north are interested in integrating renewable energy such as wind and solar into their generation mix to reduce their dependency on, and consumption of, diesel fuel. Join Mike Ross as he outlines aspects of the electric grid that must be taken into consideration when integrating renewables, and how Yukon Research Centre is working to reduce the barriers and limitations to integration. He will focus on recent work on the Old Crow Solar Project as an example of what can be done.
