As an ICE mentor, I aim to share my knowledge about the issues faced by remote communities for securing clean, safe, and sustainable sources of energy. I want to contribute to the cycle of learning by facilitating partnerships, supporting community capacity building, and providing training opportunities. I want to ensure that everyone’s comments and insights are valued.
I would like to work with First Nation economic development coordinators and Band representatives with respect to “deal” structuring of renewable energy projects, solar, wind, hydroelectric and provide best practices from a legal point of view.
