Wind and Solar Energy Reports

Since 2005, the Aurora Research Institute has been conducting research on the potential use of wind and solar energy in communities that are currently dependent on diesel-generated electricity. Reports are available for each of the communities and regions listed below. For more information on the NWT wind energy project, click on the Projects tab.
