Alaska Energy Statistics 1960-2008Fay, Ginny; Meléndez, Alejandra Villalobos; Saylor, Ben; Gerd, Sarah Christine (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2011-05)Prior to 1985, the federal Alaska Power Administration published the Alaska Electric Power Statistics. Then, the Alaska Energy Authority (formerly the Alaska Power Authority) began gathering statistical data and publishing this annual report. In 1988, the Alaska Electric Power Statistics report became a combined effort between the Alaska Systems Coordinating Council and the Alaska Energy Authority. Beginning in 1993, the report became a joint effort between the Alaska Systems Coordinating Council and the Alaska Department of Community and Regional Affairs, Division of Energy. After the 1995 report, no further reports were published until 2003 when a report was prepared by the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER), University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), with funding provided by the Alaska Energy Authority (AEA), the Regulatory Commission of Alaska (RCA), and the Denali Commission. This twenty-third edition of the Alaska Electric Energy Statistics was prepared by the Institute of Social and Economic Research. Information on utility, industry, and military electricity capacity, generation, and other characteristics was gathered primarily from reports filed with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Energy Information Administration (EIA) and made available on their website. This was supplemented by data collected by the Alaska Energy Authority through the Power Cost Equalization (PCE) program and a limited number of direct contacts with electric power producers in the state. This is a similar methodology used to develop information for the 2003 report.
