Preliminary results of research on High Efficiency Woodstove Pilot Project released
NCC’s Department of Research, Education and Culture has partnered with researchers from Dalhousie University’s School for Resource and Environmental Studies on a new research initiative entitled ‘Envisioning and Advancing Energy Autonomy in NunatuKavut’. The research is being funded primarily through a SSHRC post-doctoral fellowship that is being held by Dr. Nick Mercer and supplemented with funding through the multi-year CIHR Environment and Health Signature Initiative entitled A SHARED Future. Additional funding has been provided by the Government of Canada’s Indigenous Off-Diesel Initiate (IODI).
The research project has two primary pathways:
- a critical policy and project analysis which seeks to determine how NunatuKavut Inuit have been involved with and benefitted from previous and ongoing energy-related decisions in the region; and
- the implementation of a high efficiency woodstove [HEWS] pilot project in the partner community of Black Tickle.
Today, we released the preliminary findings of the pilot project. Read the report by clicking on the image below.
