  • Arctic Remote Energy Networks Academy Forum

March 17th, 2016 | 9:30am – 11:30am
Lola Tilly Building, UAF Large Conference Room

A project of the Arctic Council’s Sustainable Development Working Group, ARENA, addresses the need for affordable, reliable, and renewably sourced energy solutions for communities that are located in the Arctic. It integrates web-based seminars with classroom learning, field experience, and draws from best practices established through the experience of the people living 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 into their communities and help improve the management of fossil fuel resources used for power production and heating. A multi-week pilot program is planned for the summer of 2016.

Join us as we host a forum about this pilot program. Participants will learn what a microgrid is, the issues encountered when integrating renewable resources, and tour a fully operational microgrid laboratory on the UAF campus.

Space is limited.
