        Off-grid cabins, fish camps and rural communities have long looked to alternative sources of energy as the cost of power in Alaska remains high. However, even Railbelt homeowners and businesses have been moving toward solar power. There are a number of motivations for that, but a major one is likely the plummeting cost of solar installations.   33,, articles and books. Periodicals Literature. No ties to the grid or anyone else: railbelt transmission and distribution. Link/Page Citation Alaska is an island. The latter, electrical power generation and transmission, is such an important infrastructure need that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is charged with.

On Ap Alaska’s Governor signed into law Senate Bill to ensure the creation of a new electric reliability organization (ERO) for the.

      Reliability and Planning – in discussion. As an active participant in ARCTEC (Alaska Railbelt Cooperative Transmission and Electric Company), MEA is participating in discussions around system-wide upgrades to achieve increased reliability and regional planning for the state’s largest interconnected grid. ARCTEC’s goal is to develop an organization that would manage and enforce Railbelt. In Alaska’s unique energy infrastructure, we pride ourselves on educating and providing for Alaska’s energy needs. We are leading the way by exploring the benefits of emerging technologies in clean, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy. Our innovative spirit is essential to meet the challenges of Alaska’s conditions.

The Railbelt Integrated Resource Plan (RIRP) is the plan for capital investment in generation and transmission and in fuel portfolios to be built, owned and operated by the Greater Railbelt Energy and Transmission Corp. (GRETC), involving utility and State planners.

Inthe Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) identified a list of projects needed to bring Railbelt infrastructure up to peak reliability and efficiency standards. The Railbelt Transmission Plan includes $ million in projects, about half of which would improve energy transmission from AEA’s Bradley Lake hydro plant to Anchorage, the Mat-Su.

project, the Browne hydroelectric project, large wind energy conversion sys­ tems and coal-gasification combined-cycle power plants. These alternatives are examined in the following reports: Ebasco Services, Inc. Coal-Fired Steam-Electric Power Plant Alternatives for the Railbelt Region of Alaska.

The system requires MW of storage for the loss of a 2MW unit operating during the summer peak load periods.

The northern portion of the Railbelt including Fairbanks and other communities in the Interior relies on petroleum fuels in addition to natural gas, coal and hydroelectric electrical imports from the south. Petroleum fuels provide the majority of energy used for transportation across the entire state.

Together with its companion volume, Energy Systems and Sustainability, Second Edition (OUP,), this book provides both perspective and detail on the relative merits and state of progress of technologies for utilizing the various "renewables." The analysis considers emissions, sustainability, cost implications, and energy Reviews: AEA, as owner of significant generation and transmission assets in the railbelt region of the State, and in furtherance of its mission to reduce the cost of energy in the State, plays an important role in ensuring that sound public policy and energy planning initiatives within the region, maximize the potential benefits to the broadest group of stakeholders.

We’ve seen those massive wind turbines, but it's also possible to use wind energy on a smaller scale to power your home. Small wind energy is renewable, clean, and cost-effective. Depending on your location and the type of home wind system installed, you’ll typically see a return on investment anywhere from six to 30 years.

Regional Generation Facilities It was determined that even if very low future electricity demand increases are assumed for the Railbelt region, retirement of older generating units will require substantial new generation.

Alaska’s Railbelt electric utility leaders are headed back to the drawing board after five years of work now that efforts to jointly manage the region’s transmission infrastructure have failed, at least for the time being. Alaska Energy Authority hired Black and Veatch (B&V) to develop an IRP for the Railbelt region of Alaska.

This is the region that covers the area from roughly Fairbanks to Seward and where the bulk of Alaska’s population resides. B&V’s IRP evaluated the resources it believes Alaska will require over the next 50 years to meet its energy demand. Chris Rose with Renewable Energy Alaska Project said he agrees with the many reasons to run Railbelt transmission as one grid, including that it could help integrate renewable power.
