* CONFERENCE RESCHEDULED to April 13-16, 2021 *


Conference details

Overview

RiRC2021 is a four-day event at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre in Whitehorse, Yukon from April 13 to 16, 2021. The two-day main conference, supplemented by activities on the pre-conference and post-conference days, focuses on the collaboration and financial solutions necessary to further accelerate the transition of clean energy in remote communities across Canada while prioritizing Indigenous-owned and led projects.

Research on market transformation, innovative financing mechanisms and collaborative funding models, energy policy, national diesel reduction trends, project costing and diesel subsidies will be provided before the conference to facilitate discussion and collaboration.

Conference objectives

  1. Recognize and celebrate the successes of Indigenous-led clean energy projects and learn where remote communities are on their path to decarbonization and clean energy transition.
  2. Deepen our understanding of market innovation, market-based solutions, and how the clean economy across Canada (and internationally) is attracting private investment and what is needed to bring these solutions further to remote communities.
  3. Explore how better financial approaches, funding models, energy policy, UNDRIP, Indigenous utility ownership, and regulations can accelerate clean energy deployment by finding the right conditions for private investment to complement government funding and strong policy.
  4. Learn about diesel and energy subsidies and how to make the economic case to transition to clean energy more compelling.
  5. Agree on feasible next steps and develop a Working Group that will continue to push for good policies and solutions to increase investment opportunities and build Indigenous leadership in the clean energy sector.
