The NIPPC Annual Meeting

Join us at Alderbrook!

September 15-17, 2024

Our annual conference is a one-of-a-kind event, where NIPPC brings together key players from across the power sector 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.

“At the Crossroads”

The theme of this year’s conference, “At the Crossroads,” reflects the important upcoming choices facing the Northwest and broader West about organized wholesale markets, transmission capacity, and decarbonization.

We will convene for NIPPC’s annual conference at Alderbrook Resort, the longtime home of our event.
