Ikummatiit Energy Strategy was adopted in 2007 by the Government of Nunavut and provides energy vision for the energy sector until 2020. The goal is to reach a sustainable energy system that is secure, environmentally responsible, and optimizes economic benefits by 2020.

The strategy seeks to achieve the following objectives:
• Improve the security of the energy system by reducing reliance on imported fossil fuels, diversifying energy supply to include clean, alternative energy and domestic energy sources.
• Manage the cost of energy-based services such as transportation, heating, hot water, lighting, and cooking, by reducing the cost of providing energy and improving the efficiency of its use.
• Reduce the impact on the environment by reducing energy-related emissions which contribute to pollution and climate change.
• Provide business and employment opportunities as the Territory increases energy efficiency and uses renewable and domestic energy sources.
