This CoLab is on the topic of BioEnergy, with a focus on high-efficiency wood stoves as a means of communities getting access to safe, clean, healthy, affordable heat for their homes for the climate we live in.
During this event, we will be hosting discussions to reveal the realities of home heating in indigenous communities, with active participation by attendees. Following this opening discussion, Neil Hawkes will discuss his experiences in implementing heating stove upgrades in Nunatsiavut, followed by an introduction, by Darrell Bown, to the Indigenous Energy Efficiency Equipment (I3E) Initiative, which specializes in bulk-ordering of high-efficiency wood stoves. Mike Tilson will then talk about some of the different products available and what features are important for communities to consider when planning a heating stove upgrade.
This session will be hosted by Kyla Morriseau, a 2018 Catalyst from Aniimbiigoo Zaag'iging Anishinabek in Ontario. Kyla will be joined by Neil Hawkes from the Nunatsiavut Government and a 2018 20/20 Catalyst, Darrell Brown, a 2016 Catalyst and Cree entrepreneur, and Mike Tilson from Chu Cho Environmental LLP, also a 2018 20/20 Catalyst.
