CAES is a partnership between INL and the state through its three public research colleges – Boise State University, Idaho State University and University of Idaho. The center is committed to conducting research to address the country’s and Idaho’s energy challenges, with emphasis on nuclear. It also is charged with addressing the looming nuclear energy work-force shortage.
The Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory's (ESBL) research projects are focused on understanding how buildings and related transportation determine energy and resource use. The lab's goals are to develop strategies for maximum energy efficiency in new materials, components, assemblies, and whole buildings. Architects, designers, builders, developers, and governmental agencies use ESBL to improve buildings and communities.
The Office of Energy Resources has the responsibility for energy planning, policy and coordination in the State of Idaho. Our goal is to communicate Idaho's energy policies to our stakeholders and provide the public with the information they need to help us meet our state's future energy needs.

The Integrated Design lab (IDL) is a self-supporting University of Washington Service to the building industry. The IDL includes interdisciplinary UW research, faculty, staff, and students that support the development of high-performance commercial and institutional building design including lighting, daylighting and energy infrastructure. The IDL has established design and construction market relationships in the Pacific Northwest through the provision of technical assistance, design guidance, and building energy efficiency research.
The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) is a non-profit organization working to maximize energy efficiency to meet our future energy needs. NEEA is supported by, and works in collaboration with, the Bonneville Power Administration, Energy Trust of Oregon and more than 100 Northwest utilities on behalf of more than 12 million energy consumers.
The Northwest Power and Conservation Council was created by Congress to give the citizens of Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington a stronger voice in determining the future of key resources common to all four states — namely, the electricity generated at and fish and wildlife affected by the Columbia River Basin hydropower dams.
