The Alaska Wind-Diesel Workshop sponsored by Alaska Energy Authority and hosted by Renewable Energy Alaska Project (REAP) was held in Fairbanks on June 20-21, 2017 in Fairbanks, Alaska. More than 70 attendees from Alaska and around the Arctic gathered for a day of training sessions and a full day of panel sessions. Participants were welcomed to the workshop by University of Alaska President Dr. Jim Johnsen, and IGRC facilitator and REAP Executive Director Chris Rose. Speakers covered a range of topics critical to the successful operation of and optimization of remote wind-hybrid power systems from energy storage and control systems to needs for training and operation and maintenance protocols.
The Workshop is as an annual event that brings together technical, business and political leaders to highlight the unique challenges and opportunities facing remote grid systems. The Workshop also highlights Alaska’s leadership role in developing remote grid systems. Over 70 remote communities in the state now have some form of renewable energy tied into their diesel grids, including more than 30 using wind.
