The GNWT has outlined a series of energy projects that will reduce GHG emissions as part of the 2030 NWT Energy Plan. These are just a portion of the actions identified as part of the energy plan.

Many of these actions will be completed in partnership with the federal government under programs that require 25% of the funding be provided by the GNWT and 75% by the federal government.

Specific initiatives planned over the next five years include:

  • Inuvik Wind
  • Fort Providence/Kakisa Transmission
  • Norman Wells Wind/Diesel
  • Whatì Transmission
  • Fort Simpson LNG
  • Sachs Harbour Wind/Diesel
  • Aklavik Additional Solar for VSG Trial
  • Fort McPherson Conventional Solar
  • Tulita Solar for Advanced Inverter Trial
  • Ulukhaktok Conventional Solar
  • Paulatuk Conventional Solar
  • Wekweètì Conventional Solar
  • Tsiigehtchic Conventional Solar

Revenues from the NWT Carbon Tax that are targeted for investing in green initiatives are expected to total more than $40.0 million over the next five years and will be the main source of resources used to advance actions approved through the 2030 Energy Plan.
