Low-Carbon Energy Transitions Workshop Starts This Week!

Many countries are striving to transition to energy sources that produce less atmospheric carbon. This transition has been economically and technologically challenging for many nations, but there are exceptions. Countries such as Iceland (geothermal), Denmark (wind) and France (nuclear) have been pathfinders — navigating this transition early, and making remarkable transformations in their energy supplies in relatively short time periods.

This workshop will dive into the specific and varied experiences of these three countries. What were the drivers that set these nations on alternative energy paths? And what role did national policy, innovation and technology development play in helping navigate successful transitions?

Join us for the first workshop in the Pre-Alaska Sustainable Energy Conference series, “Low-Carbon Energy Transitions: Lessons Learned from Global Pathfinders.”

Dates: Tuesday, Feb. 14, and Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2023

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Cost: Free, but you must register in advance.

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 22-25, 2023, at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska. 

Mark your calendars for the upcoming workshops:
