The NWT Biomass Energy Strategy 2012-2015 builds on progress gained in the development of biomass energy in the Northwest Territories (NWT) during the past two years through the implementation of the NWT Biomass Energy Strategy 2010. It serves as a tool for the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) to lead and coordinate actions promoting the creation and use of biomass energy in the NWT.
The Biomass Energy Strategy 2012-2015 enables the creation of conditions for biomass to become an integral part of a more sustainable energy mix for the NWT by:
• establishing effective government policies and programs;
• supporting private sector innovation and initiative in
developing biomass energy markets; and
• building strong partnerships with communities, nations and other levels of government and the private sector.
