Energy development in NWT is guided by the NWT 2030 Energy Strategy, which aims to align with the Pan Canadian Framework for Clean Growth and Climate Change. The strategic objectives include community engagement, targets for the reduction of GHG emission, an increase in the share of renewable energies and an increase in buildings’ energy efficiency. The policy aims to “guide the development of affordable, and sustainable energy for transportation, heat, and electricity, support energy efficiency and conservation, and promote renewable and alternative energy solutions for the NWT”. The Energy Action Plan 2018 – 2021 (Government of Northwest Territories) sets the ongoing and yearly new Actions and Initiatives needed for the GNWT and its partners to achieve the Strategic Objectives set out in the 2030 Strategy.
