It’s difficult to know what the future of our region’s energy systems will look like, given the rapid pace of technological advances in an unpredictable market for implementing them. With limited resources and ever-changing knowledge, how do we decide what research to prioritize?

Enter the Technology Roadmap: an extended look at the future of an industry, knitting together the knowledge of the brightest scholars and practitioners in that field. Technology roadmaps help many interested parties all arrive at the same place, aligning activities. This presentation outlines successes and lessons learned in creating a technology roadmap for energy efficiency in the Northwest.
