Alaska’s Renewable Energy Future: New Jobs, Affordable Energy

Date: March 21, 2022

New research reveals that development of Alaska’s vast renewable energy resources has the potential to create more than 100,000 jobs across Alaska in the coming decades, more than replacing jobs that will be lost as the world transitions away from fossil fuels.

Based on adjusting a sample of independent studies for Alaska cost differentials for renewable resource, energy storage and zero carbon hydrogen/clean fuels infrastructure, the report estimates that by 2050, the transition to a 100% clean renewable energy future for Alaska would generate a net increase of 67,216 jobs (103,554 additional renewable jobs minus 36,338 fossil fuel energy related jobs lost).
