Rewiring the Northwest’s Energy Infrastructure
An Integrated Vision and New Investment Strategy
Rewiring the Northwest’s Energy Infrastructure paints a picture of an integrated energy system in the Pacific Northwest that by 2040 is among the most sustainable and resilient in the world, and is affordable to the people, businesses, and institutions who pay for it.
Rewiring is a thoughtful, strategic, elegantly-crafted assessment of how to make major investments in the face of huge, inevitable, inherently-unknowable disruptions. Public and private officials charged with creating a sustainable, resilient energy future now have an excellent new lodestar to guide their journey.

The Center for Sustainable Infrastructure has produced a report that is thorough, objective, and insightful. I read it cover to cover, and recommend it to any and all energy policy makers in the Pacific Northwest. I look forward to more of their excellent work.

The Center for Sustainable Infrastructure 2040 Energy Report challenges us to think about how to tranform one of the most important parts of the 20th century infrastructure into something equally remarkable in the 21st century. It is bold and visionary, but is grounded in reality at the same time. It serves as a blueprint for great possibilities.

This work is the beginning of a way to fill a yawning gap in the Northwest - a thorough assessment of how the many pieces of clean energy can fit together to provide a long-term, reliable, and cost-effective energy system in the region that minimizes environmental impact.
