Bioenergy power solutions for remote First Nation communities
The BC First Nations Energy and Mining Council, the BC First Nations Forestry Council, and BCBN were signatories to a tripartite collaboration agreement in the form of a memorandum of understanding.
This agreement was in regards to BC First Nations’ capacity-building opportunities relating to energy and economic development, in particular, bioenergy power solutions for off-grid or end-of-line First Nations communities.
The parties endeavoured to raise additional capital for use in provincial bioenergy projects, and sought to undertake at least one project in a First Nations community in BC. One objective of the fundraising was to raise capital from the federal government to support a number of First Nations bioenergy projects in BC.
The parties and their principals made progress regarding the development of a woody biomass-powered Combined Heat and Power (“CHP”) system in the community of Fort Ware.
