Hydro Alternatives for the Yukon
YCS’s objectives for the Hydro Alternatives for the Yukon workshop were to:
- showcase existing hydro projects in our region that provide local economic development opportunities and meet energy needs while respecting ecological limits and community values.
- share information about the potential for a new-to-the-Yukon hydro project – pumped storage – that can support other renewables on the Yukon’s independent electricity grid.
- learn more about the environmental impacts of the Yukon’s legacy hydro dams and the potential harms of proposed Next Generation Hydro-type large dams.
