The Arctic Energy Alliance (AEA) was invited to present at the 49th annual gathering of the NWTAC which took place at Katlodeeche (Hay River Reserve) May 6-11, 2015.

AEA took this opportunity to introduce Tom Gross and Louise Schumann from our newest office in Hay River. Highlights of the Energy Audit Program, a collaboration project between NWTAC, AEA and some of the NWT communities were provided, as well as an update on AEA’s current activities and initiatives.

Good feedback was received from a number of community representatives at the meeting and there was strong interest expressed in the need for building audits, solar and biomass information, and future energy planning.

The gathering ended with an Open Discussion Forum with GNWT Ministers. In attendance were the Honourable Robert R. McLeod, the Honourable Glen Abernethy, the Honourable Tom Beaulieu and the Honourable J. Michael Miltenberger.

The NWT Association of Communities was formed in 1966 to represent the interests of municipal governments in the Northwest Territories. Every Community Government in the Northwest Territories is a member of the NWTAC.
