DOE Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Projects These projects seek to reduce and stabilize energy costs of tribal buildings in four different communities in Southwest Alaska.
Energy Efficiency Program & Policy Recommendations This project is a comprehensive review and analysis of the energy efficiency policies and programs in the State of Alaska. The final report was completed in 2008 and many of the recommendations were implemented.
Mountain View Housing Study This study evaluated new homes built by the Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) and a local contractor that are heated with boilers or furnace. Researchers examined the energy efficiency, homeowner comfort, indoor air quality, and humidity control of the homes. The project is jointly funded by the Cook Inlet Housing Authority and CCHRC.
BEES Studies CCHRC conducts economic analyses of AHFC's energy efficiency standards, known as Building Energy Efficiency Standards (BEES). This looks at the construction costs and maintenance costs of meeting the standards and quantifies the savings in areas like energy, heath, and safety.
Fuel Use Monitoring Researchers are testing several methods of monitoring fuel use at the household level to identify a cost-effective and accurate method for monitoring heating oil consumption across Alaska.
