Transmission lines in Kotzebue take power from the wind turbines and solar panels into the community.

Transmission and distribution systems are critical aspects of energy infrastructure and are essential for driving sustainable change in Alaska's energy future. This workshop will explore innovative strategies and technologies that are shaping the future of clean energy. Attendees will gain valuable insights into the importance of optimizing grid systems, enhancing efficiencies, and overcoming barriers to renewable energy integrations as we navigate the complexities of energy transitions and be a driving force for a cleaner, brighter future. 

Join us for the second a series of three free virtual monthly workshops hosted by ACEP, leading up to the 2024 Alaska Sustainable Energy Conference. These pre-conference workshops will take a deeper dive into specific topics that are pending or a priority for Alaska’s energy future. The workshops will be held via Zoom over two half-days each month.

Tuesday and Wednesday, April 2-3, 8:30 a.m. to noon: "Transmission and Distribution: The clean energy transitions secret weapon"

Tuesday and Wednesday, May 7-8, 8:30 a.m. to noon: "Betting Big: Investing in emerging energy technology"
