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 maintains a regional emerging technology database. This database houses information about emerging technology products and projects, provides portfolio-level analysis and reporting, and facilitates collaboration.
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.
