Ikummatiit: An Energy Strategy for Nunavut was passed in 2007, and provides the guiding principles for Nunavut’s energy policies and related Government programs and activities into the year 2020.
Ikummatiit has four main 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.
