Welcome to the National Aboriginal Energy and Power Association site.
The not-for-profit National Aboriginal Energy & Power Association (NAEPA) will act as a guide for Aboriginal groups across Canada to realize the economic potential of power and energy development.
Formed by Bob Joseph, Dan M. Jepsen and Jerry Asp in January 2010, the Association will deliver an annual conference focused on the power production, transmission, and oil and gas sectors with a key focus on positive and respectful Aboriginal community engagement, Government and Utility outreach and relations and business development.
Canada has a wealth of power and energy opportunities and huge untapped opportunities for Aboriginal communities to not only meet their own power and energy needs but also be able capitalize on the ensuing economic potential of this sector. NAEPA will bring together Aboriginal communities, business and government to address community energy and power needs as well as facilitate the advancement of economic development through support and promotion of an economically and environmentally sustainable Aboriginal energy and power sector.
