Arctic Remote Energy Networks Academy

The Arctic Remote Energy Networks Academy (ARENA) program focuses on sharing knowledge and establishing professional networks related to microgrids and integration of renewable energy resources for remote Arctic communities.  ARENA has been endorsed by the Arctic Council's Sustainable Development Working Group.  The United States, Canada, Finland, Iceland, and Gwich’in Council International are co-leading a 2016-2017 pilot of the program.

The first phase of the pilot is a series of pre-recorded web-based seminars that overview key Arctic energy topics and are universally available.  Subject matter experts from across the arctic will participate in these knowledge-sharing opportunities, using illustrations from throughout the circumpolar region.

The second phase of the pilot combines onsite training and field experiences at three locations across the Arctic with a competitively selected multi-national group.
