Raven Indigenous Capital Partners
Passionate advocates for both environmental stewardship and Indigenous energy sovereignty, Paul and Jeff  build culturally responsible renewable energy projects in Indigenous communities. They co-led the development of a $4.3 million social finance tool for the installation of 125 geoexchange units in three Manitoba First Nations that will reduce GHG emissions by 1,154 tonnes and save an average of 1,500,000 kWh per year. The implications of their approach is far-reaching; the model is capable of supporting renewable energy projects anywhere in the country.  With a potential of impacting 400 Indigenous communities from coast to coast to coast, they are looking to implement the same model in three B.C. First Nations, and created the Indigenous Solutions Lab on Renewable Energy.
