Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.
Our primary objective is to work together with remote (off-grid) communities in the Canadian Arctic
and Boreal regions to reduce the vulnerability of their energy systems. We feel that coming changes
related to the availability and pricing of fossil fuels and the consequences of climate change and
other factors will have negative consequences for remote communities that will be devastating and
out of proportion with the consequences for most grid-connected communities.
While there are a number of critical factors in determining the viability of a community,
sufficient energy is key. Traditional communities managed on far less energy than is used
today, but that defined a very different form of community than is typical today. With
careful planning, we can adjust to coming energy realities to maintain that which is important
