Clean Energy Transition Institute
Independent, nonpartisan Northwest research and analysis nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the clean energy transition in the Northwest.
Meeting the Challenge of Our Time – 2019
Meeting the Challenge of Our Time: Pathways to a Clean Energy Future for the Northwest is the first economy-wide analysis to examine decarbonization pathways mapped to the Northwest’s economic and institutional realities.
Operation 2030: Scaling Building Decarbonization in Washington State
CETI is launching Operation 2030 in partnership with the 2050 Institute to frame and jumpstart the large-scale mobilization required by 2030 to position Washington State to meet its transformational building decarbonization goals by 2050. The initiative currently consists of two phases starting with a report in fall 2021, followed by a series of Operation 2030 strategic forums and policy briefs throughout 2022.
Montana Governor’s Climate Solutions Council – 2020
In December 2019, the Institute and Evolved Energy Research presented deep decarbonization pathways modeling results to Montana Governor Steve Bullock’s Climate Solutions Council, which was charged with developing strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, prepare the state for climate impacts, foster innovation, and create economic development and workforce strategies for communities in transition.
Oregon Clean Energy Pathways Analysis
Our work on the Washington state energy strategy led to a new project in November 2020, Oregon Clean Energy Pathways Analysis. In partnership with Renewable Northwest, GridLab, and Evolved Energy Research, we are using the updated NWDDP model to test various decarbonization scenarios for Oregon to inform policy discussions during the upcoming 2021 legislative session.
