The Arctic Energy Summit 2015 will be held in Fairbanks, Alaska, on September 28-30. Registration is open. The Arctic Energy Summit 2015 is hosted by the Institute of the North in cooperation with the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Iceland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This year, the conference will focus on "Security and Affordability for a Resilient North", and it will have 3 main traks:

Beyond the hype of an increasingly changing and busy Arctic stand communities and businesses working hard to ensure the lights are on. While the development of rich natural resources that support northern economies grab headlines, policy makers in the North know the struggle to build critical infrastructure, invest in education, and protect a healthy environment.
Join community, business and political leaders from the eight Arctic nations, subject matter experts from around the world, and local traditional knowledge holders as we explore best practices – whether emerging technologies or innovative policy – and ways to leverage of public and private investment to help address these challenges. The Summit is highly participatory and interactive, with your participation resulting in outcomes delivered to the Sustainable Development Working Group of the Arctic Council during the U.S. Chairmanship.
The 2015 Arctic Energy Summit is a multi-disciplinary event expected to draw hundreds of industry officials, policy makers, energy professionals, researchers and community leaders. This intersection of business, community and government provides meaningful exchanges that inform future decision-making. Beyond those who attend, the sessions are filmed and video, presentations and the written proceedings are distributed to a network of thousands of interested stakeholders.
