How ACEP is funded…
ACEP projects span a broad range of renewable and fossil energy technologies, from small community resource assessments to multi-million dollar program initiatives. ACEP focuses on areas where Alaska can play a significant leadership role in technology development, and works with a wide range of funding partners. While in the past energy research at the University of Alaska has been largely federally funded, ACEP has a diverse portfolio of funding organizations with the large majority (87%) based in Alaska.
