Join us for a series of four free virtual workshops held monthly as two half-day Zoom sessions.

These workshops, sponsored by the Alaska Center for Energy and Power, serve as a primer to the upcoming Alaska Sustainable Energy Conference to be held May 24-26, 2022, at the Dena'ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska.

Join us for the second workshop in the series:

Going with the Flow: Ocean and River Energy March 1-2, 2022 — register now

Alaska is estimated to have 90% of U.S. tidal energy resources and 50% of the U.S. wave energy and in-river energy resources. A number of small-scale test deployments and demonstration projects have been installed in Alaska over the past decade, but challenges to large-scale adoption remain. Globally:

  • What is the current and emerging status of hydrokinetic energy technologies?

  • What are the key challenges for their implementation in Alaska?

  • What are the applicable lessons learned with other variable renewables?

  • How do Alaska use-case scenarios compare with those elsewhere?

Mark your calendars for these upcoming 2022 workshops:
