Description: A severe climate, high transportation costs, and limited infrastructure have led to high energy costs in many places in Alaska, particularly in remote villages. Some communities are seeking opportunities to convert oil and electrical heat to a renewable energy source such as woody biomass. There are different types of wood energy appliances and fuel sources, and finding the right fit requires assessing local needs and tailoring the technology to the community. There are still serious barriers to adopting new energy technologies in Alaska. However, some projects have been successful and can serve as models for other communities.
