Clean Energy in Oregon - What's Next

Eleven years strong, Oregon's Energy Future is the state's signature clean energy event, connecting policy with practice and addressing the industry’s current challenges and opportunities.

This year’s exciting new plenary format will explore the nexus of energy, efficiency, and the state's clean energy economy. Speakers and panel discussions will address how Oregon can continue as a clean energy leader amidst the changing political landscape. Discussions will also focus on markets and strategies for energy projects and efficiency, and how to create new opportunities through equity and inclusion.

One year after the historic Clean Energy Bill, how are we doing?

What is the current context for advancing clean energy and moving away from coal?

How do we continue to build support for clean energy in Oregon?

What is the future of the Clean Power Plan?
