History

Energy OutWest as an organization can trace its roots to earlier efforts to gather weatherization professionals from western states in an organization that could advance the practice of weatherization in their region of the US. Prior to Energy OutWest there was Energy Northwest which sponsored several of its own regional weatherization conferences. The Energy OutWest board has planned and delivered weatherization conferences for its regional membership since 2002. Past conferences:
