WHITEHORSE – Yukon University has received funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). This funding was announced on June 14th at the University of Ottawa.

Dr. Michael Ross, NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Northern Energy Innovation has led this project at Yukon University. The project received a total of $187,843 to access electric power system modelling and analysis software. This software is used to help the research team model remote power systems to conduct technical assessments and incorporate more renewables without affecting system stability. 

“We’re excited about the opportunity to better support our partners as we work together to reduce our reliance on diesel fuels.” said Dr. Ross, “This new platform will also help our students be trained to industry standard and better prepare them for future careers.”
