The study gathered primary data from the Energy Trust of Oregon (ETO), Oregon Department of Revenue (DOR), Oregon Legislative Fiscal Office (LFO), and the Engineering and Technology Industry Council (ETIC). The study shows that Oregon spends approximately $400 million each year on energy policy. However, expenditures for energy research and talent development are negligible and declining.
Published by Portland State University, Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science, this study identifies workforce gaps, Oregon University System program deficiencies, and provides recommendations for a collaborative approach toward meeting Oregon’s power engineering needs by using existing programs more effectively and partnering with the private sector.
A comprehensive compilation of data of supply and demand trends, price comparisons, environmental concerns, and emerging energy technologies. This document provides a framework for policymakers when considering the trends and technologies associated with traditional and emerging sources of energy.
A proposal submitted to the Oregon Innovation Council designed to identify and coordinate elements that would lead to sustained clean power technology growth, high-wage jobs, and an industry cluster that targets the creation of 8,600 new jobs in clean power technology companies by 2020.
A policy document presented to a task force on job creation and economic development in the Governor’s Office.
This document identifies serious workforce shortages in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields, evaluates Oregon’s research university capacity, and recommends the formation of a public/private initiative designed to train undergraduate and graduate students to staff emerging renewable energy companies in Oregon.
