Clean Energy Transition Institute
Independent, nonpartisan research and analysis nonprofit dedicated to accelerating an equitable clean energy transition in the Northwest.
An Equitable Economic and Technical Roadmap to 2030 aims to provide decarbonization pathways analysis combined with an employment study to guide actions in the four Northwest states from now until 2030 and put the region on the path to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
The Clean Energy Transition Institute has created two projects to explore the opportunities and challenges of industrial decarbonization. Industry, especially “heavy” industry that produces basic materials like metals, chemicals, and cement, tends to be highly carbon intensive.
Clean Energy and Northwest Rural Communities
The Clean Energy Transition Institute has created two projects to explore the development of clean energy in Northwest rural communities. These efforts seek to center and elevate rural voices in clean energy policy discussions, ensuring rural communities are full participants in defining the benefits and challenges of decarbonization.
Clean Materials Manufacturing
The Clean Materials Manufacturing project expanded upon that analysis for six manufacturing sectors—aluminum, concrete and cement, glass, iron and steel, pulp and paper, and wood products—to provide background material for Building Washington’s Clean Materials Manufacturing Economy.
