This briefing analyzes how to optimize positive impacts for Indigenous communities, organizations, and Peoples through reliable and cost-effective renewable energy projects. The briefing is based on Indigenous Clean Energy’s (ICE) extensive programming supporting Indigenous clean energy participation; and tracking of project development and impacts over the past two decades. ICE is open to interacting with electricity agencies including utilities, regulators, and provincial/territorial governments on policy, programs, regulatory, systems planning and structuring of arrangements to procure new generating capacity. To bring online reliable and cost-competitive new generating capacity that also optimizes positive economic and social impacts/outcomes for Indigenous communities and peoples. ICE is open to such dialogues on a confidential and collaborative basis. It should be noted that ICE’s programming focuses on Indigenous clean energy capacity-building. ICE is supportive of, but does not directly participate in, clean energy project developments, ownership, or operations; and does not derive any material benefit from clean energy project development and implementation.
