Upcoming Events & Funding Opportunities

  • LIVESTREAM: Northwest Energy Policy and the Columbia River at Portland State University
    The course will take place on Monday evenings from 6:40-9:40 pm.  It starts this coming Monday evening, January 8, but that session is primarily for graduate students.  Since there is no class on January 15 (MLK day), the session of particular relevance to energy professionals is January 22.

    This course will be taught at one of Portland State University’s Distance Learning Center classrooms so course participants living anywhere in the Northwest can participate by streaming the class sessions live or by viewing archived sessions at their convenience. NWEC members are particularly encouraged to consider joining us.
