ISER's research in this area examines issues and questions at the intersection of energy, environment, and society. This work is intended to help support informed decisions and effective adaptation to change. ISER researchers collaborate closely with the Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and with government and tribal agencies, industry, and non-profit groups. Research work in this area is broad and includes:

  • Evaluating emerging energy technologies
  • Modeling the potential effects of changes in energy policies
  • Estimating Alaska energy production and use
  • Measuring the economic value of nature-based tourism
  • Examining visitor travel and spending patterns

Alaska Energy Data Gateway
The Alaska Energy Data Gateway is a database with energy data from across Alaska. The site provides data from many sources, through a single access point. The data can be downloaded in a variety of file formats. The gateway was developed in cooperation with the Alaska Energy Authority and is housed at the University of Alaska’s Arctic Region Supercomputing Center in Fairbanks.
