Alaskan Research Explores Benefits Of Renewable Microgrids - Solar Industry

New research is detailing how microgrids in Alaska offer an enticing approach for local renewable energy generation by building flexibility into existing electrical grids. Articles in the recent issue of the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy provide a review of energy technologies and costs for microgrids in Alaska. Researchers at the Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP) at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks conducted the review, and the project received support from the Alaska Energy Authority. According to the researchers, remote villages in Alaska provide an example of how safeguards can build resilience into a larger electrical grid. These communities rely on microgrids – small, local power stations that operate autonomously. Unlike the lower 48 states, Alaska’s terrain makes it difficult and cost-prohibitive to establish a large-scale electrical grid, ...
