2022 RTF Meetings
2022 meeting dates have been set and can be viewed on our calendar. Meetings early in the year will be held virtually. A decision about in-person meetings will be made, in coordination with the larger Council organization, when it feels safe to do so.

How does the RTF help the region achieve its goals?

 

With the passage of the Northwest Power Act in 1980, Congress defined energy efficiency as a key resource for meeting the region's load growth. The Regional Technical Forum was established as a body that would provide the region with consistent and reliable quantification of energy savings estimates for specific efficient technologies or actions. The energy savings estimates generated through the public processes of the RTF enable accurate estimates of the region's efficiency potential vital to power system planning, as well as a better understanding of the region's efficiency accomplishments. Since 1978, energy efficiency has provided significant benefits to the Northwest:

$5 billion

dollars saved from avoided energy consumption

21.9 million

metric tons of carbon dioxide avoided

6,900 aMW

saved making efficiency the NW’s second largest energy resource
