The series of events brought together diverse Arctic stakeholders, including Alaska Natives, with industry entrepreneurs, university and laboratory researchers, and government leaders to:
- Discuss energy challenges, innovative solutions, and technology deployment opportunities
- Further existing energy projects
- Learn about funding opportunities
- Hear from organizations advancing clean energy in the Arctic
- Network with other Arctic stakeholders and visit key places in Alaska
- Explore Arctic energy transition pathways
The ArcticX series kicked off virtually and webinars in November, January, and April attracted over 1,000 attendees. We featured presentations from Energy Secretary Granholm, Secretary of Interior Haaland, and Deputy Secretary of Energy Turk alongside 15+ panelists with boots on-the-ground experience.
