START Program 2013: Alaska

Alaska Native Community Energy Planning and Projects

The Strategic Technical Assistance Response Team (START) Program is part of the DOE Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs effort to assist in the development of tribal renewable energy projects. Through START, Tribes in the 48 contiguous states and Alaska can apply for and are selected to receive technical assistance from DOE and national laboratory experts to move projects closer to implementation.

Through the START program, the DOE Office of Indian Energy works directly with tribal communities to evaluate project financial and technical feasibility, provide ongoing training to community members, and help implement a variety of clean energy projects, including energy storage infrastructure, renewable energy deployment, and energy efficiency.
