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.

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”

We were delighted to be able to gather in person for NIPPC’s 18th annual conference at Alderbrook Resort, the longtime home of our event.

Over 100 people including IPPs, utilities, regulators, legal advisors, consultants and others involved in the power industry joined us for two days of presentations and discussions on the policy issues at the heart of today’s power sector.

Planning will start soon for the 2022 event.
