DOE Releases NW Regional Clean Energy Innovation Partnership Report

WA Governor Jay Inslee, Secretary of Energy Ernest J. Moniz, and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell at the Northwest Regional Clean Energy Innovation Partnership Workshop on August 15.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released a new report entitled, “Exploring Regional Opportunities in the U.S. for Clean Energy Technology Innovation.”

Volume I of this report summarizes the results of 14 university-hosted regional forums (from April through September 2016) that DOE participated in on regional clean energy innovation. On August 15, 2016, the Clean Energy Institute hosted one of these forums, the Northwest Regional Clean Energy Innovation Partnership (RCEIP) Workshop, at the University of Washington.

Volume II is a compilation of the reports written and produced by the individual universities. The Northwest Regional Clean Energy Innovation Partnership Workshop Report is available here.

“Providing clean energy to the inhabitants of our planet is a major challenge to future generations. The University of Washington is to be congratulated for establishing an Institute where faculty and students can work together to tackle the difficult global challenge of energy sustainability.”
– Mildred Dresselhaus, Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering, Emerita and Institute Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
“Energy competition is opening up in a variety of ways, the push for carbon control will continue, and the rate of technology advancement is exponential. All the things I’ve seen at the CEI are just perfect for the way we see things going in energy. You guys are at the cutting edge. We’re counting on you.”
– Ronald Litzinger, President, Edison Energy
Since its founding the Clean Energy Institute has contributed more than $1.1 million toward the education of 66 STEM scholars and recruitment of 12 students through our fellowship programs.
