The Alaska Retrofit Information System (ARIS) is a wealth of data on housing in Alaska, including housing size, cost, energy use, airtightness, and more for over 75,000 homes across the state. ARIS provides CCHRC and AHFC valuable information about the economics of energy efficiency, the state of housing in various communities, and the success of retrofit programs in various regions.
This project builds a web-based user interface for data collection, reporting, and analysis.
