2014 Alaska Native Village Energy Development Workshop

Renewable Energy Project Development and Finance Workshop for Alaska Native Villages

April 3, 2014
Wind Power in Alaska

In the past few years wind power has become more and more prevalent across Alaska, with big turbines sprouting up in all parts of the state. Sponsored by the Renewable Energy Alaska Project, event attendees will hear from Suzanne Gibson of Fire Island Wind, LLC about phase two of their Anchorage project. Also hear from Dennis Meiners of Intelligent Energy Systems about his work installing wind-diesel hybrid systems in rural Alaska.

The forum will be held both in person and via a live webinar.

This aerial photo shows open water and floating ice on ponds, lakes and river channels in the Sagavanirktok River Delta in Alaska’s North Slope. PNNL scientists employed satellite technology to understand the impacts of oil development activities on the environment. Using satellite radar to “see” through the ice, scientists detected critical fish overwintering habitats by identifying where ice was grounded and where it was floating. 
 
Utilizing this information on critical habitats, fishery managers can suggest locations for energy development activities that increase the sustainability of fishery resources and minimize environmental impacts. Research was funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior. | Photo courtesy of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
