Description

Yukon College's Cold Climate Innovation will host a workshop on Clean Technologies (“Clean Tech”) held on March 8th-9th, 2018 at the Coast High Country Inn in Whitehorse, Yukon.

The goal of this workshop is to stimulate the development of new solutions to northern challenges.

The 1.5 day workshop will feature keynote presentations and panels that will speak to the challenges of pursuing clean tech projects and how to overcome these technical challenges in Yukon communities.

Working with experts, academics, government officials, First Nations and clean tech professionals, the workshop will facilitate an outcome-orientated discussion on how to foster and promote clean technologies in the territory.



Clean Tech can refer to any process, product, or service that reduces negative climate and/or environmental impacts through significant energy efficiency improvements, the sustainable use of resources, or environmental protection activities. It encompasses technologies that support clean, renewable energy such as wind, solar and biofuels (including biomass systems where there is a net zero lifecycle impact on the environment), energy storage systems, improved energy efficiency, waste recycling, improved waste and waste water treatment and management, waste to energy systems, green transportation including vehicles powered by electric and biofuels, and even IT systems that support greener technologies and environmental financing models aimed at supporting clean tech start-ups and the increased uptake of clean technologies.
