The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is announcing the second round of tribal consultations and stakeholder outreach meetings on the National Strategy for the Arctic Region 10-year plan to accelerate renewable energy resources in the Arctic Region.
The purpose of this round is to give feedback on the elements of the draft plan. As a key tribal leader and/or stakeholder in the Arctic Region, we invite you to attend one of the upcoming stakeholder meetings to provide input on the 10-Year Plan, as well as other DOE-related activities and federal agency needs and priorities in the Arctic Region.
The National Strategy for the Arctic Region outlines U.S. strategic priorities for the region to respond effectively to emerging opportunities while pursuing efforts to protect and conserve the Arctic’s unique environment. The National Strategy builds upon existing initiatives by federal, state, local, and tribal authorities, the private sector, and international partners, and focuses efforts where opportunities exist and action is needed. An Implementation Plan was developed in January 2014 to outline the methodology, process, and approach for executing the strategy. To gather input on the plan, DOE, in conjunction with several other federal agencies, will host consultation sessions and meetings in a variety of locations:
- Feb. 19: Fairbanks
- Feb. 20: Barrow
- Feb. 23: Kotzebue
- Feb. 24: Nome
- Feb. 25: Bethel
- Feb. 27: Unalaska
- March 3: Anchorage
