Energy Policy

NWFPA’s Energy Goal

In 2009, NWFPA was the first industry group in the nation to adopt a goal to accelerate the implementation of energy efficiency strategies to reduce member-wide energy intensity by 25% in 10 years and through innovation, new technologies and new resources achieve a total reduction of 50% in 20 years. This goal is consistent with the United States Department of Energy’s Better Buildings, Better Plants program. NWFPA members recognize that the most effective way to manage energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and at the same time increase productivity and economic growth is through greater implementation of energy efficiency. Energy efficiency plays a key role in sustainability and in ensuring that NWFPA members remain competitive.

NWFPA Energy Committee

Energy Committee membership is open to all NWFPA member management, policy or technical personnel with an interest in or responsibility for energy and resource issues. The Committee develops and recommends association policies, positions, priorities and activities with regard to energy efficiency, resource conservation, energy supply and reliability, renewable resources, emerging technologies resource management and productivity improvements. It also advises and guides the development and implementation of NWFPA’s Energy Roadmap and projects as well as other energy and resource programs. Meetings are held in the fall at NWFPA’s Autumn Assembly, in January at NWFPA’s Expo and Conference and as needed. If you are interested in Committee membership, contact Josh Monifi.
