  • ACEP’s Innovation Helps Alaska Microgrids — in a Nutshell

In our fourth feature of the Research in a Nutshell series, ACEP student researcher Henry Toal invites us to learn about an innovative device he assisted in developing that is helping remote Alaska microgrids be more efficient.

In this series, we present our researchers’ important work in understandable language from real human beings. No jargon. No technical data. Just the research highlights — in a nutshell.

We will continue to add more of these one-minute videos, edited by ACEP’s chief storyteller Amanda Byrd, to the collection. So keep visiting, and find out what we are doing at ACEP!


Henry Toal explains how ACEP’s innovation is helping the microgrids in Alaska communities perform more efficiently.
