Alaska Wood Energy Conference

April 25-27, 2011 Fairbanks, Alaska

The 2011 Alaska Wood Energy Conference “Making Wood Work – Local Energy Solutions” a collaborative effort led by the Alaska Energy Authority, was held in Fairbanks, Alaska April 25-27, 2011.

Since the 2007 Alaska Wood Energy Conference, many biomass projects have moved forward.  Alaska House Bill 152 (Renewable Energy Fund) legislation was signed and authorized in 2008. To date, over $16 million has been awarded to 21 biomass design and construction projects. Alaska now has an operational pellet manufacturing plant in North Pole and successful wood-fired boilers throughout the state.

Conference topics included biomass boiler system implementation, forest resource identification and management, residential applications and combined heat and power. The conference brought together Native corporations, state and federal agency personnel, biomass manufacturers, and community leaders. Conference participants gained increased knowledge of the opportunities and potential for biomass energy in Alaska to help reduce dependency on imported petroleum products and enhance local economies.
