In an effort to further reduce diesel reliance in the North, Natural Resources Canada announced a combined $4.2-million investment for two TUGLIQ Energy Corporation projects in Nunavut and Quebec. $283,000 will fund a study to integrate compressed air energy storage and thereby incorporate more wind energy at a Nunavut mine. $3.9 million will expand Nunavik's first renewable energy production and storage centre, which supports 16 regional mining operations in the Arctic. Called Raglan 2.0, the large-scale smart grid builds on an existing demonstration project that proved the viability of industrial-scale renewable energy under harsh climactic conditions at Northern sites. The funding for both projects comes from Natural Resources Canada's Energy Innovation Program, a $49-million fund that aims to make clean energy technologies more widely affordable.
