Projects

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.
Certified Alaska Tough Certified Alaska Tough distinguishes building products that can withstand the extreme climate conditions of Alaska, while meeting strict energy efficiency standards.
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.
Evaluating Window Insulation CCRHC tested eight types of common window insulation treatments during a Fairbanks winter to see how they handled heat loss and moisture buildup. Exterior insulation methods, like shutters and storm windows, tended to perform the best and have the fewest condensation problems.
