The Clean Energy Transition Institute (CETI) has produced economy-wide deep decarbonization pathways modeling since its inception to provide blueprints for how Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington policymakers might achieve a low-carbon, clean energy economy over the coming three decades.
Residential and commercial buildings account for approximately 14% of total Northwest emissions. The Clean Energy Transition Institute focuses on the critical steps that must be taken between now and 2030 to get on the road to decarbonizing buildings fully by 2050.
The Clean Energy Transition Institute created two projects in 2022 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.
The Clean Energy Transition Institute has developed 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.
