In the Northwest, efficiency organizations, utilities, laboratories and others are working together and pooling their resources to identify and refine technologies that perform well and save energy for Northwest consumers, while decreasing risks for the region.
A key driver in helping these emerging technologies succeed is collaboration through the Regional Emerging Technology Advisory Committee, better known as RETAC. To optimize regional investment in energy-efficient technologies, RETAC launched a shared, regional emerging technology database in 2017. This database houses information about emerging technology products and projects, provides portfolio-level analysis and reporting, and facilitates collaboration.
Click the filters on the map below to see active RETAC projects by partner and technology. And, for more details on the alliance’s emerging technology activities across the region, see NEEA’s latest quarterly updates and Emerging Technology reports linked at the bottom of this page.
