Yukon Biomass Energy Strategy

The Yukon government is seeking public feedback on a draft Biomass Energy Strategy. The goal of this strategy is to facilitate the development of a biomass energy sector to help heat buildings and homes using wood, Yukon’s primary biomass resource. Yukon residents are encouraged to review the proposed strategy and provide feedback by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 26, 2015.


Commercial Energy Incentive Program

This new incentive program directly assists Yukon apartment and condominium owners in retrofitting their buildings to improve energy performance and reduce energy consumption, costs and emissions. A second component of the program targets the overall lighting efficiency of commercial and institutional buildings by encouraging building owners to upgrade to energy efficient and long lasting LED lighting systems.

The new program will come into effect on May 1, 2015.


Good Energy Residential Incentives program introduced

The Yukon government is introducing a new energy incentive program that supports Yukoners in renovating existing homes or in building new super-insulated homes to achieve greater energy savings. Another component of the new program offers an incentive to reduce the capital costs of installing smaller-scale, residential renewable energy system to generate electricity.


Independent Power Production

The Yukon government is currently developing a policy for independent power production. The goal of this policy is to support the participation of independent power producers in the development and expansion of environmentally sound and affordable electrical supply for customers while respecting the integrity of the existing electrical system. Public consultation was held over the summer of 2014.
