Two memorandums of understanding were signed between the renewable energy leader EverWind Fuels Company and two Mi’Kmaw Corporations based in Nova Scotia, The Membertou Development Corporation and The Paq’tnkek Bayside Development Corporation.

EverWind is a Nova Scotia based private green hydrogen and ammonia developer with a green hydrogen and ammonia project in Point Tupper. Its mission supports the green energy transition and strengthens the provinces position in reaching net zero emissions. Using cutting edge technology, the projects initial phases total an estimated 6 billion dollars in capitol expenditures and will reduce dependence on fossil fuels and create a sustainable clean energy source for Nova Scotians and the world.

Both Mi’Kmaw organizations are in support of EverWinds project in Point Tupper and they are looking to support green energy transition and strengthening the provinces’ goal in reaching net zero emissions. Chief Terry Paul, the CEO of Membertou says EverWinds potential to change the landscape of how we view and access energy for the next seven generations is crucial, so people have clean energy in the future. Noting that Membertou wants to be part of the solution.

“Paq’tnkek is the closest Mi’kmaq community to the proposed wind development for EverWinds green hydrogen project, and by partnering as owners it allows us to meet our goals of securing our economic independence and energy sovereignty.” Says Rose Paul, CEO of Bayside Development. “As Mi’kmaw, we understand the importance of helping lead the way in the green hydrogen industry given its importance to the environment. Our involvement aligns with our role as the traditional stewards of the land, deliver impactful employment within our community, and further develop our people as business leaders of the future.”

The founder of EverWind and CEO Trent Vichie says working in partnership with the Mi’kmaw in Nova Scotia has been part of his vision for the project from the beginning.
