Waves are the big thing here- surfing by the big mountains, whales running around out in the bay, tall (old growth) trees, etc… People from all over the country have met for a couple days for the Yakutat Energy Fair and it looks as though wave power is the big talk. Lots of biomass and even some solar people also are attending from lower 48, Hawaii and in-state.
CES has had a presence with a table attended by Sarah Lewis (Juneau agent) and myself. A highlight was to spend quite a bit of booth time with the AK Education Commissioner about the energy efficiency of schools statewide. ACEP also had a booth, and there were about a half a dozen Fairbanksians attended and presented various workshops. (From there on to Cordova for a stop over to present biofuel and remote camp energy workshops).
