Stranded Renewable Energy Resources of Alaska Report
Alaska is home to significant renewable energy resources. Geothermal, wind, tidal, wave, hydro and even solar and biomass resources have the theoretical potential to not only meet the majority of Alaska’s in-state energy needs, but also provide tremendous economic and strategic opportunities for the State and the Nation. Despite the many opportunities for developing these resources, there are also significant barriers. Foremost among these challenges is the fact that many of Alaska’s renewable energy resources are stranded. Read this report in full.
Congratulations to the 2012 KidWind Challenge Winners!
This year's competition saw 22 team competing from throughout Alaska. The students continue to amaze and inspire us and our judges were impressed by the level of competition and the enthusiasm for the program. Find more information and winning teams here.
