The harsh conditions present in many areas of Alaska make it difficult to implement energy systems similar to those found in the the contiguous U.S. The state has abundant energy resources, but engineers have to rise to these challenging conditions and develop new technologies and adapt existing technologies that will allow these systems to work in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Among the organizations performing research on various technologies in Alaska is Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP), an applied energy research program based at the University of Alaska. Many of ACEP's research projects include testing emerging energy technology.
