Summer Brings Talent and Funding

Summer has officially arrived in the Northwest, and with it we welcome a familiar face back to the CETI team. Mariah Caballero, lead author of our Community-Defined Decarbonization report, will lend her talents to support our work developing the technical modeling for the Oregon Energy Strategy and our other rural decarbonization projects this summer.

We are seeking an Operations Contractor to help manage CETI’s business operations. Check out the RFQ we have created here. I am excited about adding this role to our team as it will allow me to focus my energy on CETI’s programs, team, and strategic direction.

CETI held its Annual Board meeting in May to select officers and I am very pleased to announce that Liz Thomas was elected President; Kathleen Hebert, Vice President; John McGarry, Treasurer; Ross Macfarlane, Secretary; and Bonnie Frye Hemphill, Director

Finally, I am delighted to announce that CETI received excellent foundation grant news this month: the Seattle Foundation renewed its operational support for $50,000 and the Sustainable Path Foundation renewed its grant support for our SCALE 2030 project, increasing its prior level of support from $10,000 to $15,000.

Demystifying Decarbonization: Transmission in the Northwest

This month, Research Analyst Jeanne Currie takes a deep dive into transmission – what it is, why it matters for the clean energy transition, and how a more effective, centralized process for transmission planning could help the Northwest achieve decarbonization. Check it out: No Transition Without Transmission

In Case You Missed It: NW Clean Energy Atlas Updates

Earlier in June, we shared updates to our Northwest Clean Energy Atlas interactive visualizations. ACORN Research Fellow Will Kammin wrote a blog describing some of the new visualizations and drawing connections to his master’s thesis on the development of floating offshore wind along the U.S. Pacific Coast. Explore the Atlas and check out Will’s blog.
