New alliance to bring renewable energy to remote communities in Canada’s Arctic, WWF-Canada announces

World Wildlife Fund Canada has brought together six organizations to help remote Canadian Arctic communities transition to renewable energy and reduce dependence on importing hazardous and costly diesel fuel.

The initiative comes after a recent commitment from the leaders of Canada and the Unites States to end the use of diesel power generation in the Arctic and the latest Canadian federal budget allocated funds for renewable energy projects in indigenous and northern communities.
