Solar Energy Research in ... Alaska!
- Apr 1, 2020 4:59 pm GMT
Alaska is often referred to as the Land of the Midnight Sun. More and more of that sunlight (and at other times of the day) is being harnessed to generate electricity at locations across the state, in scales that range from the kW to the 100's of kW. Low ambient temperatures and snow/ice reflections can result in compelling, and sometimes surprising, performance. The Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP), an applied research organization within the University of Alaska Fairbanks, is actively involved in a range of projects related to solar photovoltaic systems in cold climates - an introduction to those initiatives is available at the ACEP website (acep.uaf.edu). Michelle Wilber, part of the solar team at ACEP, recently posted this webcast as part of the program's information-sharing efforts:
Get Published - Build a Following
The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.
If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
