In 2016, the alliance continued to mobilize the Northwest to become increasingly energy efficient. Working together, we conducted lab and field testing of over a dozen promising new electric and natural gas technologies, launched four new programs out of our emerging technology pipeline, and drove progress and results in key programs:
Our portfolio of programs delivered more than 41 aMW of energy savings to the region in 2016 - enough electricity to power more than 30,000 Northwest homes annually.
As we think about the next 20 years of regional energy efficiency, we’d like to thank you - our funders and stakeholders. Your leadership, collaboration and commitment to delivering energy-efficient options to Northwest customers is making energy efficiency a cornerstone of a vibrant, sustainable Northwest. And, we look forward to working with you as we plan for our next five-year business cycle, beginning in 2020, and beyond.
Energy efficiency helps create jobs in our region, supports a strong economy and provides a cleaner environment for future generations. By working together to accelerate the adoption of energy-efficient products and practices, the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance is helping to create a vibrant and sustainable Northwest for us all.
