(Photo: Magdalena Tomasik) Autumn in Akureyri  The Arctic is sometimes described as the last frontier in the development of energy resources.

The Institute of the North's Arctic Energy Summit will explore energy as a fundamental element of the sustainable development of the Arctic as a lasting frontier.

Central to this concept is how a focus on richness, resilience and responsibility will provide a pathway for sustainable energy development in the Arctic and for Arctic communities.

The 2013 Arctic Energy Summit is a multi-disciplinary event expected to draw several hundred industry officials, scientists, academics, policy makers, energy professionals and community leaders together to collaborate and share leading approaches on Arctic energy issues.

The 2013 Summit will address energy extraction, production and transmission in the Arctic as it relates to three thematic areas and key questions, including richness, resilience, and responsibility.

Keynote speakers will include Mr Aqqaluk Lynge, representative of Alaskan Inuit, Mr David Garman, former Under Secretary of Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy and Mr. Christopher R. Sauer who is President and CEO and a founding member of Ocean Renewable Power Company.

Arctic Energy Summit 2013 will become gathering for media representatives from all over the world in order to raise the awareness about current energy – related issues in changing Arctic.
