  • Informational Webinar for ETIPP Community Technical Assistance Projects

Alaska’s remote and islanded communities may apply to receive technical assistance to develop plans and practices that decrease dependence on imported fossil fuels and increase resiliency.

Register for a Feb. 16 informational webinar and hear from current Energy Transitions Initiative Partnership Program communities here.

The ETIPP will select eight-12 communities across the country, including a few in Alaska, to receive assistance for 12-18 months in a number of energy areas. The program also provides an opportunity for communities to learn from each other to accelerate the sharing of best practices and innovations.

In Alaska, the regional partners facilitating this assistance include Renewable Energy Alaska Project and a team from the University of Alaska, including ACEP and the Institute of Social and Economic Research. The ETIPP application can be foundhere (due April 15).

For updates and to learn about the current community projects in Alaska, follow the Alaska Rural Energy Partnership Facebook page. To apply or obtain more information on types of technical assistance offered, please email regional partner contacts Rob Jordan at REAP at rjordan@realaska.org or Patty Eagan at ACEP at pmeagan@alaska.edu.
