Off-grid power systems
The application of the planned measures will provide communities with an opportunity to get involved in energy demand and supply management. For this first five-year period, the reduction in the consumption of petroleum products, while modest, will provide a solid foundation for the next phase.
The consumption of petroleum products in off-grid power systems will be significantly reduced, notably through energy efficiency improvements to buildings and the use of renewable energy sources. To achieve this, local and Indigenous communities as well as the private sector will have adopted an integrated approach.
- Increase research and development
- Integrate renewable energy into thermal power plants that produce electricity in off-the-grid systems
- Step up energy efficiency efforts
