Greater energy industry collaboration spurred by online resource Conduit


Conduit, a web-based resource, helps energy-efficiency professionals in the Pacific Northwest share best practices, discuss current topics, collaborate on projects and present their findings from conferences or research. Developed by the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and the Bonneville Power Administration, the online tool facilitates greater coordination among utilities, nonprofits, governments and others working to further the region’s energy-efficiency goals.

Conduit provides users with a variety of ways to gather, share and request information through blog posts, cross-organizational work groups, energy-related news articles from the homepage news feed and daily or weekly emails highlighting the latest posts and featured stories.

“Conduit is an informative resource to find the latest in industry news and trends. I’m also able to provide updates about Energy Trust program changes and ask for feedback and ideas from other users,” said Hannah Hacker, Energy Trust communications manager and Conduit user.

“Conduit is becoming the one-stop shop for energy-efficiency professionals throughout the Pacific Northwest. We’re seeing continued growth in membership and usage,” said Ben Fowler, online community manager, NEEA. “We work closely with BPA to ensure the site meets the needs of stakeholders and customers.”
