Advisory Board

We are led by an Advisory Board comprised of energy industry and labor leaders along with our partners in education, including regional consumer-owned and investor-owned utilities, a federal power-marketing administration (the Bonneville Power Administration), organized labor, community and technical colleges and universities, and workforce and economic development councils. The board is organized under the Advisory Board Charter adopted in November 2020 (pending).

Our Advisory Board is a permanent standing board to provide advice and insight to the Center from the perspective of industry, education, labor, and the community.

The board helps the Center achieve its mission by ensuring that programs and projects advance the needs of the energy sector within the region. The diversity of membership provides an invaluable resource to Center Staff and program partners to easily access information and contacts throughout the industry.

The strength of the advisory board was a key component in the elevation of the center from a state organization to a Department of Energy recognized Regional Center of Excellence.
