Mark Masteller is an assistant professor of sustainable energy, working with the University of Alaska Fairbanks Alaska Center for Energy and Power on the diesel free heating project in Kotzebue.

He was formerly the Sustainable Energy program director at UAF’s Bristol Bay campus and at the UA Anchorage Mat-Su campus, where he taught courses on energy efficiency and renewable energy, including aspects of building science and energy policy.

Masteller believes affordable, clean energy is critical for healthy, resilient Alaskan communities, and he understands we have exciting economic opportunities — and challenges — related to the transition to clean energy systems relying on local, renewable resources across this diverse state.

Masteller began working in Alaska in 1981, and prior to joining the UA system he was state director for Cascadia Green Building Council, as director of the Alaska Center for Appropriate Technology, and as a wildlife biologist for both state and federal agencies.
