You can’t improve what you don’t measure. Protection of our ecosystems demands urgent, data-driven optimization of the emission, economic, and equity impacts of our emission policies.
Policy parameters and their interactions must be carefully quantified. We developed multiple open-source modeling tools to analyze which emission policies are effective, how much they cost, and their equity impacts.
Transportation electrification is now the best strategy for rapid decarbonization and cost savings. Automakers are racing to produce electric vehicles, and the Pacific Northwest has the cheapest electricity in the US.
Power Oregon is an independent, clean-energy think tank that develops and promotes policies that both accelerate decarbonization and strengthen Oregon’s economy. We focus on what matters and what works.
