Equity Considerations for Renewable Energy Technologies in Alaska Offshore Waters

Research output: NRELPoster


For many Alaskan communities, access to resilient, affordable, sustainable, and clean energy resources are top among the solutions they will need to help them navigate their changing landscape. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management funded the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to conduct a feasibility study to examine the potential for renewable energy technologies in Alaska offshore waters (with a focus on waters that are under BOEM's purview, the Outer Continental Shelf). With unprecedented investments from the federal government in bolstering resiliency in rural, remote and disadvantaged communities, renewable energy development in Alaska offshore waters could very well become a reality within the next two decades.
