ATNI Tribal Energy Efficiency Network Event: November 14, 2018
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 is a one-day workshop for tribal leaders, program staff, and others looking to learn about opportunities for projects, partnerships, and investment in the clean energy and saving sector. This is event is co-sponsored by the Affiliated Tribes of NW Indians, Institute for Tribal Government, and the Northwest Energy Coalition.
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 tribal communities 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 for tribal communities to connect with energy efficiency service providers, policymakers, state and local government representatives, tribal representatives, and community advocates. This workshop is scheduled in concert with the “Clean & Affordable Energy Conference” November 15, 2018 at the World Forestry Center (4033 Southwest Canyon Road) Portland, OR.
