Technology transfer of bioenergy systems for remote communities

The goal of this research is to use the developed information around the technical, economical and social political challenges for the implementation of small-scale bioenergy systems in remote indigenous communities in Canada. The targeted outcome creates a multi faceted model to evaluate the success and impact of future installation with less input factors to simplify the technology transfer and lower the overall investment requirements for communities or stakeholders. The project therefore attempts to promote and ease the installation of clean technologies in Canada to reduce carbon emissions, create job opportunities and retain money in local communities. The usage of local biofuels would further decrease the risk of wild fire in small communities and remote locations.
