  • ACEP at Emerging Priorities in Energy Research Event

ACEP researchers joined colleagues from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, Alaska Power Association, Alaska Energy Authority, Alaska utilities and Department of Energy national labs to share energy systems experience and challenges at the Emerging Priorities in Energy Research forum in Anchorage.

The meeting included individual and panel presentations on topics including energy storage, renewable integration, resiliency and infrastructure, and power generation performance.

ACEP leadership helped NRECA and APA organize the event, provided technical content and served as panel moderators for a portion of the program. ACEP also provided sponsorship funds to assist with its implementation. Copies of the presentation materials will be available for download from NRECA in the near future.
