Arctic Energy Summit

The Arctic is sometimes described as the last frontier in the development of energy resources.  The Institute of the North’s 2015 Arctic Energy Summit built on our legacy efforts to address energy as a fundamental element of the sustainable development of the Arctic as a lasting frontier. Central to this concept is how a focus on providing pathways for affordable energy development in the Arctic and for Arctic communities.

The Arctic Energy Summit (AES) is a multi-disciplinary event expected to draw several hundred industry officials, scientists, academics, policy makers, energy professionals and community leaders together to collaborate and share leading approaches on Arctic energy issues.

The Arctic Energy Summit in the past has been an endorsed project of the Sustainable Development Working Group of the Arctic Council and is timed to take place in conjunction with a meeting of that body. Potential partners include Alaska Energy Authority, National Energy Authority of Iceland, Nordregio, OGP JIP Arctic Committee, Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, Arctic Portal, Renewable Energy Alaska Project, Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, Cold Climate Housing Research Center, and the Kurchatov Institute.
