Kluane RH2

Hydrogen Storage

The Kluane Lake area is the traditional territory of the Lù’àn Män Ku Dän, the Kluane Lake People. The Kluane Lake Research Station (KLRS) is located on the south shore of Lù’àn Män, within the traditional territories of the Kluane, White River, and Champagne and Aishihik First Nations. High Latitude Energy Consulting would like to acknowledge these First Nations and their longstanding and powerful relationship with this land.

The Kluane Lake Research Station, in partnership with High Latitude Energy Consulting and Thor Hydrogen, explored the feasibility of expanding its renewable energy system to allow for increased load and expansion to year-round operation. The Kluane RH2 project demonstrates how a remote facility may operate year-round on renewable energy when paired with hydrogen storage. The system consists of energy generation (solar photovoltaic), energy storage & delivery (water electrolysis + hydrogen storage + fuel cell), and energy demand (facility) with the objective of making a clear case for seasonal energy storage via hydrogen. This real-world example showcases a complete renewable energy ecosystem, providing reliable, year-round power – even in a challenging northern Canadian climate.

Given the unique nature of this type of energy storage microgrid in Canada (and globally) the project includes extended feasibility elements and in-depth analysis beyond the fence line of the Kluane Lake Research Station. This included detailed study of elements such as safety, risk assessment, hydrogen storage methods, hydrogen fuel for transportation, scaling, environmental impacts, capacity building, and regulatory pathways. As a result, this feasibility study is to act as a demonstrator, defining viable, scalable, renewable energy generation and storage concepts for communities across Canada’s north. This project has sparked conversations with First Nations, Government, and research institutions such as University of Calgary, University of Victoria, and University of Ottawa. It is our hope that the valuable insights and data from Kluane RH2 will be applied forward to inform and shape future northern community initiatives and lead to greater energy resiliency in northern communities.

The Kluane RH2 feasibility study was completed in September of 2023. The following link provides access to the Executive Summary for the final report. More information is available upon request.

Arctic Microgrid

Solar Site 1
Grid-Tied IPP

Selkirk Development Corporation (SDC) proposed Selkirk Solar Site 1, a grid-tied 2MW AC solar PV plant, intending to realize a sustainable and economically prosperous future for the Selkirk First Nation (SFN). The project will contribute solar energy to the mix of the Yukon grid, reduce the Yukon’s GHG emissions, and generate a long-term revenue stream for SDC through the Yukon’s Independent Power Producer (IPP) – Standing Offer Program.

High Latitude Energy Consulting is working with SDC and conducting all of the feasibility and design work for Selkirk Solar Site 1.
