A Partnerships First approach to reducing diesel dependence
NRStor uses a Partnerships First approach to microgrid project development. We build meaningful, long-term partnerships with remote and Indigenous communities, economic development organizations, and businesses. Together, we design, build, finance, own and operate microgrid energy systems serving both diesel dependent communities and mine sites. We tailor our solutions to align with a community or mine’s specific energy objectives.
These projects significantly reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and associated GHG emissions, delivering clean, stable and sustainable energy along with long term economic development.
How it works
NRStor implements microgrid systems that use energy storage to enable a high degree of renewable energy to be integrated into systems currently dependent on diesel fuel.
The Hamlet of Arviat is a remote community located in Nunavut on the Western shore of the Hudson Bay. The community is accessible only by plane and summer barges used to bring in food and supplies, including diesel fuel for power. NRStor has been working with the Hamlet of Arviat to develop a community-centric, technology agnostic solution to reduce the Hamlet’s dependence on diesel power.
