Clean Energy Forum
Wednesday, December 11th | 6:15 to 8:00 pm
Anchorage Museum Auditorium
“The Dollars & Cents of Alaska’s Proposed Energy Projects”
What’s the difference between a big natural gas pipeline and a small one? How much will the proposed Susitna Watana hydroelectric project cost? How will these big projects affect the development of clean energy projects in the future? Hear the answers to these questions and more at this month’s Clean Energy Forum. Antony Scott, Senior Economist and Energy Analyst for the Alaska Center for Energy and Power at UAF, will give a financial comparison of the major natural gas and renewable energy projects on the table for Alaska, and talk about what implications they will have on other proposed energy projects.

Commercial Energy Audit Program
The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) is accepting applications for a third round of funding for their Commercial Energy Audit Program. This program provides funding for privately owned commercial buildings to receive comprehensive energy audits, up to $7,000 for a qualifying energy audit (funding based on size and complexity of the building). Two rounds of funding have already supported energy audits at 179 buildings across the state. Applications are due December 20, 2013.
Watch this video series to see what changes the Old Harbor Books building in Sitka made as a result of this program.
