Abstract

This project explores the facilitators and barriers to effective knowledge transfer between parties with asymmetric and incomplete information (Lin et al., 2005). It is intended to close a gap in our understanding of how to effectively share knowledge between parties that do not have the same base knowledge, culture, or motivation. The specific context is that of sustainable energy practices in Alaska as facilitated by University of Alaska Fairbanks Bristol Bay Campus efforts at community outreach. This is set within the broader mandate of; a) sustainable energy practices aimed at reducing cost and reliance on finite energy resources; b) the native communities desire to rebalance traditional and westernised ways of living in local communities. Keywords: knowledge transfer; sustainable energy practices; renewable energy sources; energy efficiency; asymmetric knowledge; Alaska. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Berdrow, I. and Marsik, T. (2015) `Knowledge transfer between parties of asymmetric knowledge and information: the case of the Bristol Bay sustainable energy programme', Interdisciplinary Environmental Review, Vol. 16, No. 1, pp.46­62.
