Alaska Center for Energy and Power

ACEP serves as a gateway to energy research and focusing on areas that most directly meet the immediate needs for the state and its critical industries.

The Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP) based at the University of Alaska is dedicated to applied energy research and testing focused on lowering the cost of energy throughout Alaska and developing economic opportunities for the State, its residents, and its industries.

ACEP's Energy Technology Testing Facilities provide a unique opprotunity to test equipment and new software in a controlled integrated grid system to lower costs to industry and reduce risk to villages and remote locations.

ACEP has established the Alaska Hydrokinetic Energy Research Center in Nenana, Alaska, to test hydrokinetic power-generating devices and technology under realistic Alaskan river conditions.
