Climate Solutions’ Strategic Innovation programs catalyze replicable, scalable, economically practical solutions to climate change.

Solar Shingles 200

New Energy Cities

New Energy Cities partners with small- and medium-sized communities to achieve significant carbon reductions by 2030.

By working with communities to set and attain quantifiable carbon reduction targets for buildings, transportation, and energy supply, we are catalyzing replicable models of city-led clean energy innovation.

NBI Program

Northwest Biocarbon Initiative

Northwest Biocarbon Initiative elevates the essential role that natural systems play in reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

By galvanizing the region's emerging biocarbon community to develop strategies that increase carbon capture and build a vibrant restoration economy, we are positioning the Northwest as the nation's leading incubator for biocarbon solutions.

SAF Program

Sustainable Advanced Fuels

Sustainable Advanced Fuels accelerates low-carbon alternatives to petroleum fuels in the Northwest.

By putting a Clean Fuels Standard in place in Washington and Oregon, helping to build a viable advanced fuels market in the Northwest, and supporting international efforts to create a sustainable advanced fuels supply chain, we aim to achieve significant reduction in carbon emissions due to transportation fuels.


BLCS Program

Business Leaders for Climate Solutions

Business Leaders for Climate Solutions brings together executives, entrepreneurs, and investors from around the Northwest who are committed to strong action to reduce global warming pollution and regional leadership in the transition to a clean and energy-efficient economy.

Regions with strong climate and energy policies in place are best positioned to attract new investments and generate new jobs in clean technology, renewable energy, and energy efficiency.
