Title: Akiachak Energy Action Plan

Abstract

In 2017, the Akiachak Native Community received a grant for the Akiachak Energy Efficiency Project from the United States Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy. The objective of the project was to reduce and stabilize energy costs in tribal buildings by setting energy efficiency improvement goals to provide direction for a future retrofit project. This final report begins with information about the community of Akiachak and the project procedure. Chapters follow on each component of the project. The project team began by recording information about the nine project buildings as well as the I.R.A. Council’s goal for each building. Tribal staff also gathered baseline data on each building, including their energy use and general condition. An energy professional surveyed each building, prepared an energy model using AkWarm-C energy modeling software to determine energy-saving retrofits, and completed energy audits, summarized within this report. Each energy audit lists energy efficiency measures and energy conservation measures to pursue to improve the building and decrease its energy use. This report also contains three resources to help with the next steps in an energy retrofit project: a data monitoring plan to track the building condition and energy use through a retrofit project, a maintenancemore » plan to facilitate energy conservation, and a list of funding and training opportunities that could provide resources for a retrofit or training for maintenance staff. Finally, readers can find materials from the outreach component of the project which demonstrated sustainable practices to the community. This Energy Action Plan marks the conclusion of the Akiachak Energy Efficiency Project, but is meant to lead to the next step towards safe, comfortable, and energy efficient tribal buildings that will continue to benefit the community of Akiachak for many years to come.« less
