Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance

Together We Are Transforming the Northwest - The alliance remains as committed as ever to advancing energy efficiency on behalf of the Northwest. Given this, we are finding new ways to convene and collaborate while meeting the challenges of working remotely. All NEEA staff are currently working regular hours, so please continue to reach out and contact staff as you normally would. As always, we’re here to help. We look forward to continued collaborations with partners to enable lasting market change for the benefit of the Northwest.

Efficiency Exchange 2020

Summer Webinar Series Announced

NEEA, BPA and the Council are excited to announce that the Efficiency Exchange 2020 (EFX20) conference is shifting to a virtual webinar series format. After making the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 conference planned for this month due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference planning team went to work brainstorming ways to keep the conference connections going by sharing some of the compelling content planned for this year. Over the course of the summer months, several EFX20 sessions will be made available virtually via webinar – offering educational presentations from panelists accompanied by lively, moderated discussion. The webinar series will provide a chance for the energy efficiency community to come together discuss timely issues and interesting opportunities facing the Northwest.

More details and dates will be announced soon. Subscribe to the Efficiency Exchange Conference emails to stay up-to-date with the latest announcements.

  • HPWH Study

    Heat Pump Water Heaters Achieve Significant Peak Reduction and Energy Savings

    Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has teamed up with Bonneville Power Administration, Portland General Electric and other Northwest utilities to study the load shifting and #energyefficiency potential of heat pump water heaters. The results demonstrate that 90% of evening peak load power can be reduced by switching from uncontrolled electric resistance water heaters to connected heat pump water heaters, while reducing risks for utilities as well as costs to consumers.

  • Pump

    Characterizing the market for smart pumps

    This study considered small horsepower energy-efficient pumps, or “smart pumps": packaged systems consisting of a pump, variable speed drive and integrated controls. The report discusses how the alliance can continue to shape the market through activities such as documenting smart pump performance, providing targeted training to supply chain actors, and supporting increased communication among and between supply chain actors.

    Transforming the Energy Efficiency Marketplace

    The alliance represents the market power of the Northwest’s 13 million consumers, working to build trust and credibility with regional and national entities. View NEEA's current bylaws, the Board Manual and 2020-2024 Budget by funding organization.
