Cambridge Bay

Solar + Storage Project

High Latitude Energy Corporation is working with partners Aurora Energy Solutions Inc. and project proponent Nunasi Corporation on the Cambridge Bay Solar plus Storage study. This study is designed to address the reduction of diesel usage in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut by implementing engagement and information dissemination initiatives. It focuses on the planning, development, regulatory compliance, and community engagement aspects for a proposed 3 MW solar system and 3 MWh battery to be integrated into the microgrid. Project activities encompass technical and project feasibility assessments, community engagement and education initiatives, front-end engineering and design, interconnection design, financial analysis, and all relevant regulatory negotiations and approvals. 

The project’s benefits extend to Canadians with the reduction of diesel use and greenhouse gas emissions, while stakeholders in Cambridge Bay stand to gain from an improved electricity supply system in terms of affordability, reliability, and environmental impact, alongside potential employment and economic benefits.

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.

Selkirk Storage Study

Initiated by Selkirk Development Corporation (SDC), the Selkirk Storage Study aims to address the utility’s energy storage needs while studying the feasibility and business potential of grid scale energy storage in the Yukon.

The study entails in-depth analysis of potential energy storage technologies on the YIS, evaluation of their capacity, efficiency, scalability, and cost-effectiveness, identification of optimal solutions, exploration of energy and ancillary services sales models, development of a business case, and creation of detailed system + storage models. This approach reflects SDC’s proactive stance towards addressing utility requirements, advancing renewable energy, and providing valuable insights into energy storage viability and integration, thus contributing valuable knowledge to the energy landscape in Yukon. The main goal of this project is to support further independent renewable infrastructure development in the Yukon.
