The Arctic Remote Energy Networks Academy (ARENA) is a unique circumpolar knowledge sharing program about isolated power systems integration held in partnership with Canada, Gwich’in Council International, Iceland, Russia, and the United States, endorsed by the Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG) of the Arctic Council.
Combining visits to communities and participant knowledge exchanges with presentations and laboratory demonstrations, ARENA connects current and emerging energy professionals with hands-on learning experiences, mentors, and project development leaders from throughout the circumpolar north.
ARENA seeks to provide participants with the necessary knowledge-base, skills and collaboration networks to develop clean energy projects in their own communities or regions with a view of effectively achieving balance between economic viability, energy security, environmental and public health concerns in the circumpolar Arctic region.
We are now accepting applications for the 2022 co-hort until November 26, 2021. We are seeking candidates who are living in the circumpolar Arctic, passionate about energy, and wanting to advance their community or region’s project, to apply now. The current cohort includes individuals from the United States, Canada, Russia, and Greenland, and half of the cohort identifies as Indigenous. We encourage diverse applicants.
