The NIPPC Annual Meeting

Join us at Alderbrook!

Our annual conference is a one-of-a-kind event, where NIPPC brings together key players from across the power industry to debate the issues facing our industry.

NIPPC strives to be a problem solver, working to develop practical solutions that meet the needs of all market participants. As we move towards a low carbon future, we remain focused on creating a fair and competitive industry that delivers low cost, reliable power to the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Now more than ever, our work sees us fostering constructive policy discussions among IPPs and utilities, state regulators and legislators, the Bonneville Power Administration and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and other advocacy and interest groups.

Join us for two days of open debate and dialogue, and be part of the conversation about powering our future.

“Power Together”

The theme of this year’s conference is “Power Together.” Given covid-19 vaccination rates and state reopening plans, we anticipate that we will once again be able to convene at Alderbrook Resort, the longtime home of our event.

We continue to monitor the rules governing group gatherings, and if necessary are prepared to convert the meeting to a virtual event, as we did in 2020, but we are hopeful that we will be able to meet in person.

We will post updates on our website and send emails to registrants as we get closer to the event.
