Next Level Energy Efficiency Workshop
November 14, 2018
The Native American Student Community Center, 710 SW Jackson St, Portland, OR 97201
Produced by the NW Energy Coalition & The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians
In the Northwest’s clean energy economy, energy efficiency drives the lion’s share of commerce, employment, and greenhouse gas reductions. The Next Level Energy Efficiency Workshop will explore how we can make EE work even harder.
Starting with an overview of energy efficiency contributions to the Northwest’s electric system, economy, our health, and the environment, the workshop will examine how we can tackle financial and workforce challenges in the public, commercial, and residential sectors to increase energy efficiency investment and the benefits it yields. And we’ll learn how home-based energy efficiency measures are improving air quality and contributing to the health of kids and families in tribal communities.
Sessions will include:
- EE financing options for commercial buildings
- Energy Services Contracts in the public and private sectors
- Successful EE financing approaches for multi-family housing
- Successful EE financing approaches for residential and small commercial
- In-home Air Quality with the Tribal Healthy Homes Network
- Developing a demand-side services workforce
The workshop will be a great place to connect with energy efficiency service providers, policymakers, state and local government representatives, tribal representatives, and community advocates.
