On Thursday February 3rd, 2022, four leaders in the space explored what it takes to make Indigenous clean energy projects a reality, and the role that values-based partnerships and cross-sector collaboration can play in helping communities overcome challenges, build capacity, and reap the benefits of the clean energy transition.
The video of the conversation is below. During it, they highlighted two recent examples of collaboration:
- Eskasoni Renewables, a new joint venture between Natural Forces Solar and the Eskasoni First Nation that provides training and employment opportunities through renewable energy projects in Cape Breton.
- Public sector, private sector and community collaboration in the refinancing of the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC)’s ownership stake in the Niagara Region Wind Project.
