Over the last year or so, Yukon Energy has been exploring the possibility of using beetle killed and fire killed wood to produce electricity and heat buildings. We are currently working with several partners (the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, the Dakwakada Development Corporation, Cold Climate Innovation of the Yukon Research Centre, and the Village of Haines Junction), looking at a potential opportunity to produce renewable energy in the Haines Junction area using biomass technology.
You can read more about our work here.
If you have questions or comments about this potential project, we invite you to join us for a public open house: Tuesday, January 22, 2013, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the new Da Ku Cultural Centre, 280 Alaska Highway in Haines Junction.
