Resilience Environmental Solutions has been focused over the past 2 years on working with Indigenous communities and in particular, on supporting the potential for energy independence. NRCan counts 292 off-grid/remote communities as of 2011 with 170 of those being Aboriginal. This points to a number of issues that need to be addressed – while the evidence indicates that this number is decreasing, the information is 7 years old and in need of updating. Secondly, reliance on fuel imports by off-grid/remote communities has led to energy poverty. Uptake of renewable energy has enormous potential within these communities. While they are not remote communities, the T’Sou-ke Nation and Upper Nicola Band are leading examples of the potential for a community if they embrace renewable energy. This not only supports self-determination, it also contributes towards skills training, employment, and is a potential revenue source for the nation or community. Resilience works with a number of leading organizations, small-medium enterprises (SMEs), service providers, companies, and consultants who can all work with a nation or community to realize these opportunities.
