In yesterday’s Alaska Dispatch there was an article which focused on things that Alaska has done in energy which other places come to study and possibly mimic. Certainly there are unique features to be looked at that can help other countries with similar characteristics such as:
- remote populations
- small communities
- lack of transportation infrastructure for energy transfer
- electrical cogeneration from more than one local energy source
- extreme natural disasters
The article focuses on case studies and several examples (https://www.adn.com/alaska-life/we-alaskans/2017/06/04/what-alaska-can-teach-the-world-about-renewable-energy/).
Take a look of the various communities and how they look first off for local extraction and local hire!
