Green Energy Institute Continues Work to Decarbonize

GEI has been actively involved in the implementation process of Executive Order 20-04 issued by Oregon Governor Kate Brown ’85, which directs more than a dozen state agencies to accelerate their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet Oregon’s climate goals. As part of this work, GEI has submitted six sets of comments on various regulatory and implementation proposals, participated in numerous agency proceedings, and worked collaboratively with several Oregon organizations focused on decarbonization.

GEI continues its focus on equitable and accelerated decarbonization, diesel emissions reduction, and implementation of an “electrify everything” approach to decarbonization.

GEI hired Carra Sahler ’02 as a second staff attorney.
