Emerging Energy Technology Fund Fact Sheet

January 11, 2017 - EETF Round 3 Recipients


The Alaska State Legislature created the Emerging Energy Technology Fund (EETF) in 2010 to promote the expansion of energy sources available to Alaskans. EETF grants are for demonstration projects of technologies that have a reasonable expectation of becoming commercially viable within five years. Projects can:

 Test emerging energy technologies or methods of conserving energy;
 Improve an existing technology; or
 Deploy an existing technology that has not previously been demonstrated in the state.


 

Eligible technologies include those that promote, enhance, or expand the diversity of available energy supply sources or means of transmission, increase energy efficiency, or reduce negative energy-related environmental effects. This includes technologies related to renewable sources of energy, conservation of energy, enabling technologies, efficient and effective use of hydrocarbons, and integrated systems.

Project funding made available for awards has come from state funds, a generous contribution of federal funds from the Denali Commission, and committed match from award recipients and project partners.

EETF award recipients are selected through a competitive application process.  The first two funding rounds were held in 2012 and 2013.  A Request for Proposals for a future round will be issued as additional award funding becomes available.

Project selection for the EETF program uses a two-stage application process and a volunteer advisory committee appointed by the governor.  In the first stage, brief project abstracts submitted in response to a funding solicitation are reviewed by the advisory committee and the Alaska Energy Authority.  Select applicants are then invited to submit full applications and give in-person presentations to the committee.  Abstracts submitted are made available below:


Data collection is a central component of all EETF awards.  Under an agreement with the University of Alaska, performance data generated by projects are independently verified and analyzed by the Alaska Center for Energy and Power (if a potential conflict of interest arises for any technology, another independent third party is identified).  As projects conclude, summary reports and non-sensitive data are made available to the public.

The Emerging Energy Technology Fund Advisory Committee works in consultation with AEA, offering valuable guidance and policy direction regarding the EETF program, review of all eligible submissions, and final funding recommendations. The committee is comprised of seven members appointed by the Governor to represent groups identified in the program legislation:
