Comments on Qulliq Energy Corporation’s proposed IPP policyPembina Institute submission on independent power producer program in Nunavut

Publication - March 27, 2019 - By Dave Lovekin, Dylan Heerema

The Pembina Institute is providing these recommendations based on Qulliq Energy Corporation’s (QEC) intention to develop an independent power producer (IPP) policy that will allow for community-led renewable energy projects in Nunavut’s 25 remote communities. In summary:

  • A well-designed IPP policy in Nunavut would create valuable opportunities for Indigenous communities and project proponents in developing renewable energy projects.
  • Competitive rates, data availability, transparency, and a streamlined contract process are key factors in the success of community-led renewable energy projects.
  • QEC can learn from leading jurisdictions and communities in the design of their IPP policy.
