CESA State Leadership in Clean Energy Webinar: Achieving Net Zero in Alaska and Oregon
January 23, 2015 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
This webinar highlighted two winning programs from CESA’s 2014 State Leadership in Clean Energy Awards that have worked towards the goal of achieving “net zero.” The Alaska Energy Authority, in collaboration with the Kodiak Electric Association, has worked to power the remote island community of Kodiak, Alaska with 99% renewable energy produced on-site. The Energy Trust of Oregon has successfully implemented a program to enable the City of Gresham Wastewater Treatment Plant to produce all of its energy on-site by 2015 using renewable energy sources. These two projects use very different renewable technologies, and have vastly different energy needs and site challenges. Guest speakers from the Alaska Energy Authority and the Energy Trust of Oregon presented.
