Growing Indigenous Power – New Report Available!

The A SHARED Future team is happy to alert our readers to an exciting new report that has been released by program partner, TREC Renewable Energy Co-op.  The new report, titled Growing Indigenous Power: A Review of Indigenous Involvement & Resources to Further Renewable Energy Development Across Canada, authored by Judith Lipp and Sarah Bale, looks at the uptake of renewable energy initiatives in Indigenous territories as technologies have allowed for smaller-scale developments.

The authors state that “this report attempts to highlight the current state of Indigenous Power across Canada by exploring the potential benefits such projects can bring to communities, featuring examples of Indigenous Power projects, and outlining the various supportive policies and programs that exist in each province. We also present challenges, common themes and lessons learned from project practitioners, and provide some suggestions about policy considerations and areas for future research and discussion.”
