In September 2020, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) submitted a Report to Congress titled Remote Areas of Alaska: Affordable and Reliable Options for Meeting Energy Needs and Reducing Emissions. This report presents options for the federal government to assist remote areas of Alaska with meeting the energy needs of those areas in an affordable and reliable manner using existing emissions control technology or other technology that achieves similar emissions reductions. The report discusses measures such as replacement of older diesel generators with lower-emitting generators, fuel switching, installation of renewable energy generation, and community collaboration, as well as existing federal government programs that provide assistance to the remote areas.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
