You have a stake in making our region even more energy efficient than it is. Energy efficiency is the cleanest and cheapest way to meet most of our region’s new energy needs and our goals to reduce greenhouse gas pollution. Many organizations throughout the Northwest are already hard at work saving energy. But more can be done. That’s what this paper is about: getting over the hurdles to increased energy efficiency and getting to solutions. We have a lot to lose if we wait and a lot to gain if we act.
We address six keys to increasing energy savings and creating a cleaner, more prosperous future for the Pacific Northwest:
- Clear and Effective Communication
- Money and Motivations
- Collaboration and Cooperation
- Good Standards and Codes
- A Trained and Ready Workforce
- Energy Efficiency Champions
