  • Arctic Remote Energy Networks Academy

ACEP is finalizing a proposal in collaboration with the Arctic Council Sustainable Development Working Group, to host the Arctic Remote Energy Networks Academy (ARENA) beginning in 2016. This program is intended to bring together community leaders and practitioners from across the Arctic for advance training and exchange of ideas and information focused on microgrids and integration of renewable resources for remote Arctic communities.  Its approach integrates web-based seminars with classroom learning and field exposure, and draws from best practices established through the experience of the people living and the organizations operating in the Arctic. Participants will bring back to their home countries knowledge, skills, tools, and a network of collaborators that will facilitate integrating clean energy technologies in their communities and improving management of fossil fuel resources used for power production and heating.
