WEICan Receives Funding from the Province of PEI Climate Challenge Fund


WEICan has been awarded $99,900 from the Province of PEI’s Climate Challenge Fund. This funding will allow WEICan to take advantage of our long history of expertise in meteorological data and renewable energy assets, as well as our recently commissioned Climate Monitoring Facility, funded by the Climate Challenge Fund in partnership with the University of Prince Edward Island Climate Research Laboratory (UPEI-CRL), to improve climate change adaptation and mitigation through improved climate data and sharing and improved renewable energy efficiency. The goals of this project are to:

1.       Improve knowledge of climate change by enhancing the WEICan/UPEI-CRL Climate Monitoring Facility with additional instrumentation

2.       Prepare for changing weather patterns by understanding and increasing the efficiency/reducing downtime of renewable energy infrastructure on PEI

3.       Improve knowledge sharing of climate change and adaptation by creating a public website to share data from the climate monitoring facility as well as similar units that have been placed throughout the island
