Two staff members from Arctic Energy Alliance’s (AEA's) Yellowknife office, Marie-Soleil Lacoursiere and Jennifer Wicks, went to Inuvik and held an exhibitor’s booth at the Annual Petroleum Show the end of June. They enjoyed talking to many people about energy efficiency in their homes and businesses; with the rising costs of heating in Inuvik their advice was appreciated. This year there was also more interest in solar energy which gave Marie-Soleil and Jennifer an opportunity to promote the Alternative Energy Technologies Program (AETP) that we are now administering for the GNWT.
