Alaska Electric Vehicle Workshop

The transportation sector has begun its transition to electrification in different markets throughout the world. The Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP) and the US Arctic Research Commission (USARC) hosted a free Alaska Electric Vehicle (EV) Virtual Workshop on June 16 and 17 to bring together technical and academic experts and policy makers to share information, research findings, emerging research questions, and best practices relevant to EVs in Alaska and the Arctic.

The Alaska EV Workshop explored the technical and economic potential of EVs in Alaska and the Arctic and contributed to a collective research vision for the circumpolar North. It also showcased needs and opportunities in the Alaska EV sector.

Outcomes include:

  1. Clearer vision of what we know, what we don’t know, and what we need to know;
  2. Summary USARC-ACEP report on research and policy priorities for EVs in Alaska and the Arctic;
  3. Enhanced potential for research collaborations.
