NEEA’s accomplishments in 2022 helped to bolster the region’s efforts in the face of some of the most challenging economic conditions our customers have seen. Inflation, labor shortages and supply chain issues contributed to a challenging environment in which to promote and realize energy savings. NEEA helped achieve savings and support future technologies despite these challenges. As we look towards the future and the demands of decarbonization faced by Oregon’s electric and gas utilities, NEEA’s work only grows in importance.
Energy efficiency plays a pivotal role in both the challenges and opportunities facing today’s energy system. It is a tool for businesses to be competitive in the market, helps consumers lower their energy bills, and prepares the Northwest for a resilient future. The alliance unites the diverse voices and needs of the region to enact long-lasting, meaningful change.
