About Alaska Energy Authority

The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) is a public corporation of the State of Alaska governed by a board of directors with the mission to “reduce the cost of energy in Alaska.” AEA is the state's energy office and lead agency for statewide energy policy and program development.

 Whether building modern and code-compliant bulk fuel tank farms, upgrading to high-efficiency generators in rural powerhouse systems or integrating renewable energy projects, AEA emphasizes community-based project management. AEA’s core programs work to diversify Alaska’s energy portfolio, lead energy planning and policy, invest in Alaska’s energy infrastructure, and provide rural Alaska with technical and community assistance.
 AEA also manages the Renewable Energy Fund, the Emerging Energy Technology Fund, the Power Cost Equalization Program and various Energy Efficiency and Conservation Programs. AEA provides grants and loans for qualified energy infrastructure projects and also owns energy infrastructure for the benefit of Alaskans.

What We Do

Owned Assets

AEA owns the Alaska Intertie and the Bradley Lake Hydroelectric Project. These assets benefit Railbelt consumers by reducing the cost of power.

Power Cost Equalization

The Power Cost Equalization Program reduces the unit cost of electricity in rural Alaska for residential customers and community customers of eligible utilities.

Rural Energy Assistance

AEA constructs bulk fuel tank farms, diesel powerhouses, and electrical distribution grids in rural villages. AEA supports the operation of these facilities through circuit rider and emergency response programs.

Energy Technology Programs

AEA provides renewable energy and energy efficiency grants, analysis, and expertise. These include hydro, biomass, wind, solar, and others.

Grants & Loans

AEA provides loans to qualified utilities, local governments, and independent power producers for the construction or upgrade of power generation and other energy facilities.

Energy Planning

In collaboration with local and regional partners, AEA provides critical economic and engineering analysis to plan the development of cost effective energy infrastructure.
