The United States Department of Energy (DOE) and the Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) cost-share project entitled "District Wood Heating in Fort Yukon" has two distinct phases specifically focused on developing a district heating loop system in Fort Yukon, Alaska, that will include boiler and piping installation. The Council of Athabascan Tribal Governments proposes to use the cost-share funding in Phase 1 for system design, boiler permitting, negotiation of landowner agreements and donations, and preparation of the appropriate level of National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) documentation for the Fort Yukon Wood Energy Project. The appropriate system size would be determined during Phase 1. All tasks in Phase 1 must be completed satisfactorily prior to moving to Phase 2, the system construction and installation phase.
