network of Alaska energy enthusiasts & experts
In one of the most snow bound winters on record, the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward remained warm and dry by moving heat from the icy waters of Resurrection Bay into their facility. Inspired by successful systems already operating in Norway and Canada, a two million BTU per hour demonstration heat pump system was designed in 2010, built in 2011 and tested over the winter of 2011/12. By combining Alaskan engineering and construction skills, US made equipment, and grant funds from the Denali Commission and Alaska Energy Authority, the project has moved the Alaska SeaLife Center to the cutting edge of renewable energy projects on the west coast of North America. Come join us and learn about the emerging technology of sea water heat pumps and their potential for displacing heating oil in coastal communities with low cost electricity.
PRESENTERS: Project designer Andy Baker, PE of YourCleanEnergy; Tara Riemer Jones, PhD, CEO of the Alaska SeaLife Center; and Darryl Schaefermeyer, General Manager of the Alaska SeaLife Center.
