ABSTRACT
The article discusses the goals of Alaska to increase energy efficiency and develop renewable and alternative energy resources. It cites the goals of the state to increase energy efficiency by 20% in 2020 and to generate 50% of electric needs in 2025 from renewable and alternative energy sources. It also notes the efforts of the energy authority to encourage the use of least-cost ways of generating power and the possible development of energy sources including wind, geothermal, and tidal.
