Arctic Energy & Infrastructure

Climate change, permafrost thaw, melting sea ice, ice jams, earthquakes, tsunamis and harsh conditions all pose a threat to remote Arctic communities, industry and infrastructure. From infrastructure analysis to microgrid technology, Sandia delivers essential grid and infrastructure science and technology for the Arctic region.

Arctic Grid & Renewable Energy Technologies

Access to affordable and resilient electricity is a challenge for many Alaska communities, and that harsh environment provides a proving ground for new energy technologies that can be widely and locally applied.

Arctic Infrastructure Resilience

Sandia collaborates to enable resilient infrastructure planning and design against natural emergencies and slow onset hazards. We work to understand Arctic systems and translate our research into interpretive and predictive tools as well as resilient equipment and technology.
