Burwash Landing and Destruction Bay Wind Monitoring Tower

Project Overview

Cold Climate Innovation (CCI) and Kluane First Nation (KFN) are working together to assess the wind energy potential for Burwash Landing and Destruction Bay. This project will provide and install a wind monitoring station near Burwash Landing. This station will stream wind and atmospheric data to the Yukon Research Centre data server. This information will be stored and analysed to determine potential wind energy for this location. One of the goals of this project is to initiate a Yukon-wide wind atlas.
