NEEA Q2 2022 Quarterly Report

A Note from the Executive Director

In the third year of the 2020-2024 Business Plan, NEEA’s electric portfolio is in a strong position: market adoption has increased across programs, the portfolio has become more diverse with the addition of Extended Motors Products (XMP) Pumps and Efficient Televisions and Cycle 6 energy savings are anticipated to exceed targets. While savings estimates for natural gas are significantly lower than anticipated due to reduced residential code savings in Washington and Oregon, NEEA is continuing to see strong supply chain engagement and national coalition building around new technology developments—both positive signals for future Market Transformation success.

NEEA’s Board and staff have recently completed a year-long strategic planning process, which underscored the growing need for energy efficiency in our region and the strong value proposition of the alliance. It also uncovered evolutionary opportunities for the alliance, including load flexibility, decarbonization and a greater focus on communities that have been traditionally under-served, which will be explored through business planning. With exciting opportunities on the horizon and the strongest team in its history, I have decided that it’s time to pass the torch and make room for the next generation of leadership at NEEA—I will retire in January of 2023. Serving as NEEA’s Executive Director for the past 11 years has been the highlight of my career; I’m proud of what we have accomplished together and excited about the future of this organization.

Finally, I am looking forward to NEEA’s Q3 Board Meeting to be held in Sun Valley, Idaho. As we launch business planning and begin preparing for a new cycle, the timing couldn’t be better for connecting and collaborating in person.
