The Business of Clean Energy & Efficiency
NEBC Virtual Workshops
Registration Coming Soon
The Energy Delivery System – September 21, 2021
The first in a three-part series of interactive workshops, The Energy Delivery System will focus on Oregon’s path to decarbonization, resiliency and resource adequacy, and the transformative technologies that that will shape the energy delivery system of the future.
Join us for this first installment of Oregon’s Energy Future as we confront the challenges and explore the opportunities on Oregon’s path to decarbonization and a resilient clean energy future.
2021 Keynote Presentations
Kicking off the Workshop: The Energy Delivery System: Integration to Reduce Carbon
