UAF Energy workshops hosted in Anchorage
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service will offer four home and camp energy workshops Dec. 3-9 at its Anchorage district office. Energy specialist Art Nash will make a presentation at 7 p.m. Dec. 3 about using rocket stoves for camp use and emergency situations. Rocket stoves burn small-diameter wood and wood pellets efficiently— and are used for cooking and heating. Another workshop, at 5 p.m. Dec. 8, will cover remote energy sources for camps and cabins, including solar cells, battery banks, small windmills and rocket stoves. Nash and Daisy Huang, a research engineer for the UAF Alaska Center for Energy and Power, will lead a workshop at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 9 about using small-scale wind to power homes and remote cabins. Nash will also lead a workshop at 6 p.m. Dec. 3 on Alaska’s history of energy use and production. The district office is located at 1675 C St. For more information or to register for the free workshops, call the office at 907-786-6300.
