Experience the Possibilities
Of Energy Innovation
Energy Innovation Coalition
The Energy Innovation Coalition represents local and regional partners with the common interest of supporting and accelerating clean energy innovation. We meet quarterly to share current projects, latest research and opportunities, and build alignment. Partners have the freedom and autonomy to work independently, and the resources to maximize those efforts through collaboration.
Is the Key to Success
Energy Innovation Center
The Energy Innovation Center is dedicated to creating prosperity through clean energy innovation.
Our goals include:
- Establishing a healthy clean energy ecosystem
- Cultivating Lewis County’s reputation as a clean energy leader
- Driving economic growth in our region
A Clean Energy Epicenter
Why Lewis County?
Lewis County is a budding clean-energy epicenter, ideally located halfway between Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon on the I-5 Corridor. The county is rich with natural resources – an ideal home for green tech companies and initiatives.
The area is already home to several large-scale clean energy projects including the TransAlta Wind Farm; Providence Health, which boasts the largest healthcare solar array in the state of Washington; the Center of Excellence for Clean Energy; the Southwest Washington Corridor Electrification Initiative; the area’s public transit runs on electric and – soon – hydrogen technology; and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Aviation Division has selected the Chehalis-Centralia Airport Municipal Airport as an electric aircraft beta test site.
Most importantly, Lewis County is home to the Energy Innovation Coalition, a think tank of businesses, organizations, and government agencies dedicated to facilitating clean energy innovation and supporting related businesses. The EIC is currently working to establish a fully staffed Energy Innovation Center, which will streamline the process of building or relocating a clean-energy business to Lewis County and create a support network of peers and experts designed to ensure success.
