Projects

Hybrid Micro-Energy Project This project was designed to explore and demonstrate how a variety of renewable energy sources can be integrated to power single- and multi-family housing energy demands in Alaska.
Energy Use in Alaska's Public Facilities This is the first in-depth picture of the energy use of Alaska public buildings based on comprehensive energy audits of 327 public facilities. The average building can save $25,000 per year on energy just by modest investments in efficiency.
Wood Storage Best Practices CCHRC completed a study on multiple wood storage methods to see how long it takes to cure firewood. Burning dry wood produces fewer PM 2.5 emissions and more heat energy, a benefit to both homeowners and all borough residents.
Thermal Storage Technology Assessment Thermal storage allows you to store heat for later use, such as storing solar or wood heat. This report examines the potential of thermal storage systems to enhance the use of renewable heating systems in cold climates and improve the efficiency of heating systems.
Fairbanks Nonprofit Retrofit Pilot This pilot project helps Alaska nonprofits save money by making their buildings more energy efficient. The goal is to help the nonprofit sector substantially reduce its energy costs so organizations can spend more on their mission.
