In February 2009, NWFPA, the US Department of Energy, Bonneville Power Administration, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), and Idaho National Laboratory (INL), signed a memorandum of understanding committing their support to help NWFPA achieve its energy goal.
Vision and Roadmap Workshops
To establish the vision and goal, in 2008 NWFPA and member executives gathered at the NWFPA Energy Vision Workshop. These executives recognized that the most effective way to manage energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while at the same time increasing productivity and economic growth of NWFPA members is by implementing greater energy efficiencies.
Following the October 2008 Vision Workshop, more than 75 stakeholders from NWFPA member companies, and representatives
The Vision and Roadmap Workshops were supported by Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and the US Department of Energy.
NWFPA Energy Roadmap
NWFPA's Energy Roadmap is a strategy to achieve the energy intensity reduction goals. It is also a framework for collaboration and input by our partners - federal, states, Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, Energy Trust of Oregon, utilities, suppliers, and others.
The Roadmap consists of two planning documents:
The Association Roadmap charts a strategic path for NWFPA staff and member activities at the association level, in support of the members and the industry-wide goal. It defines areas for partnerships and collaboration opportunities to catalyze food processors' efforts with the Cluster partners to achieve the Goal.
The Members Roadmap charts a suggested path for individual food processors to achieve energy intensity reductions. It is a framework for NWFPA and partners and trade allies to provide support or resources. NWFPA members can use this roadmap as a guide for setting energy intensity goals,
and for developing a strategic energy management plan.

The Energy Savings Now EnSavings Calculator is a tool included within the Roadmap that helps companies calculate the energy savings that could be realized once they have set a goal and implemented a plan to achieve the goal.
