Join us for the North to the ArcticX InnovationXLab series of events that will explore the Arctic's crucial yet largely untapped potential to serve as a living laboratory of clean energy innovation. The series includes four virtual events and culminates in an in-person event in Anchorage on May 23.

January 26, 2022: Energy Justice in the Arctic 

Join the discussion on how to ensure energy and environmental justice in the Arctic at the next ArcticX virtual event on Jan. 26, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. AKST (2 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST). Register here. Alaska residents and DOE leaders will be featured in panel discussions relating to challenges and opportunities of equitably advancing initiatives in the region.

Learn more about the event.

ArcticX showcases an interagency cross section of U.S. leadership in energy innovation and commercialization. It highlights the resourcefulness that defines this traditionally underserved but strategically important region. Join diverse Arctic stakeholders, including Alaska Natives, industry entrepreneurs, university and laboratory researchers, and government leaders in crucial discussions.

We kicked off the series on Nov. 17 with Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, Deputy Secretary David Turk, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, White House representatives, and other U.S. Department of Energy leaders.

We look forward to you joining us for the series! Visit our website to see the full agenda and more information.

Vision

The Arctic Energy Office (AEO) brings together assets from across the Department of Energy to work together in collaborative and innovative ways to meet the energy, science, and national security needs of the United States and its allies in the Arctic.

Mission

The Arctic Energy Office will lead cross-cutting operations in the Arctic with a mission to tackle the energy, science and national security challenges of the 21st Century. The office will act as a nexus for DOE activities and represent the Department in engagements involving the Arctic.

Partnerships

The Arctic Energy Office works in partnership with other DOE organizations (e.g., Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management, Office of Indian Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy, Office of Science), and the DOE national laboratories (e.g., the members of the Arctic Laboratory Partnerships consortium).

The University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF) is a key partner with the Arctic Energy Office. AEO is located on the UAF campus, providing immediate proximity to its array of arctic research expertise and resources, UAF’s Alaska Center for Energy and Power testing facility, the Cold Climate Housing Research Center operated by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and the Permafrost Tunnel Research Facility maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
