A report from the Tellus Institute shows the Northwest can meet its growing need for electricity by increasing energy efficiency and investing in new sources of renewable power generation. Thanks to recent innovations, clean energy technologies are primed to compete with gas plants, the economic benchmark for new power generation. The results of the Tellus study cast doubt on the need for additional fossil fuel generation in the Northwest.

- IssuesThe NW Energy Coalition tackles issues related to its four pillar objectives: securing all cost-effective energy efficiency, investing in new renewable energy, protecting energy consumers – especially low-income consumers, and restoring fish and wildlife harmed by the Northwest’s hydropower system. Specific issues and venues vary over time and geography, but all our actions point toward a future in which energy efficiency and new renewable energy meet all our growing power needs, benefiting energy users and enhancing wildlife and the environment.
