Energy Technology Facility Lab Modules Are Open For Business
The Alaska Center for Energy & Power (ACEP) is proud to announce the opening of their brand new facility, the Energy Technology Facility Lab Modules. This new facility will allow the Alaska Center for Energy and Power to play a new role in Alaska's energy future, housing three established test beds that together represent a remarkable opportunity for the university to partner with industry and agencies to develop solutions for the state and beyond.

ACEP/AEA Partnership on the EETF Program
ACEP is providing support to AEA regarding their management of the Emerging Energy Technology Fund Program. As a consequence of providing assistance to AEA, ACEP must recuse itself from partnering with an applicant other than to make the testing facilities available for contractual use to any AEA grant recipient. The following links provide a description of ACEP's test facilities as well as a number of FAQ's.
Alaska Wind-Diesel Applications Center
Diesel Generator Test Bed
Alaska Hydrokinetic Energy Research Center
- Community Energy Solutions – ACEP is where the rubber meets the road for developing sustainable energy solutions for Alaska’s communities. ACEP serves as a proving ground so that efficient and effective technologies can be implemented throughout the State, particularly in rural Alaska where diesel fuel and power failures come at a high cost.
- Powering the Economy – ACEP provides the research needed to develop big power projects in Alaska to service resource development needs in both the state and the Arctic. A new gold rush has begun for resources in an Arctic with diminished sea ice. Growth in Alaska and throughout the Arctic will require power, and Alaska has the opportunity to position itself as the new power broker. Large and small scale energy and power production is an issue of not only economic and energy security, but national security.
- The Energy Field of the Future – ACEP extends ongoing research at the University of Alaska in gas hydrates, heavy oil, coal, carbon sequestration and other opportunities so that the oil industry and the state are prepared for the future. The Energy Field of the Future does not need to be limited to extraction technologies. ACEP investigates new ways of using existing oil infrastructure in an environment of declining oil reserves.
