The City of Albany, OR has been working with the New Energy Cities team since October 2009, when it began preparing for a Workshop that was conducted on November 5-6, 2009. The Workshop brought together representatives from private and public sector organizations to identify how the community could work collaboratively to reduce its reliance on traditional energy sources.

As a result of the Workshop, the City is now working on projects ranging from charging stations for electric vehicles to creating an industrial energy district, as well as potentially installing solar panels on part of the roof of Target's Northwest Distribution Center.

“My first experience with New Energy Cities was a two day workshop to identify a roadmap and action plan for developing a clean, efficient energy system over a 20 year period for the City of Edmonds WA. I found their process to be nothing short of remarkable; they presented in a professional manner and with actionable goals.”
