Certified Alaska Tough Certified Alaska Tough distinguishes building products that can withstand the extreme climate conditions of Alaska, while meeting strict energy efficiency standards.
Structural Insulated Panels Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are prefabricated building materials used in residential construction in Alaska. This project prepared resources for homeowners who want to learn about SIPs, where they are used in cold climates, and considerations for Alaska.
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.
Reflective Insulation Study Reflective insulation can be effective in reducing solar heat gain in hot, sunny climates but is less effective in cold climates. This project evaluated the effectiveness of reflective insulations in cold climate construction.
Durable Envelopes for Cold Climates CCHRC is developing and testing building envelope designs that can withstand cold climates and healthy indoor humidity levels. The Mobile Test Lab has nine test wall bays, each with a different configuration of studs and insulation—including a control wall with fiberglass batt insulation.
