Power Systems Integration

The UAF Alaska Center for Energy and Power’s Energy Technology Facility in Fairbanks, Alaska tests novel technologies and strategies to optimize performance of remote microgrids, in collaboration with Alaska, other U.S., and international customers.

Energy Storage Utilization

Alaska has many operational grid-scale energy storage systems ranging from centralized, grid-scale battery systems to distributed electro-thermal storage systems and flywheels that right-size energy storage solutions to keep costs contained. 

Microgrid Operation

Alaskan researchers, project designers & developers, and utilities have experience in all aspects of operating microgrids reliably in remote areas with challenging logistical and climatic conditions. 

Niche Renewable Technologies 

Alaska is home to a wide range of innovative solar, wind and small hydro projects, some allowing diesel-off operation. In addition, many novel solutions have been tested and implemented in the state including the lowest-temperature commercial geothermal power plant operating in the world, and evaluation of multiple in-river hydrokinetic turbines.

Design & Implement Efficient Diesel Powerhouses

Packaging small systems in container units, including full automation, remote monitoring capabilities and effective recovery of rejected heat for space heating, cooling/ice making, or supplemental power generation.

Power Systems

Co-generation incorporating renewable resources with economic dispatch, power quality, reliability, and distribution of power to the customer, including regularly achieving 100%+ instantaneous penetration of variable renewable resources.
