Shaping Our Future Through Strategic Planning
Unlocking the benefits of clean energy requires long-term commitment and laser focus. To create the future we want—one where the environment is protected, people’s homes are safe and healthy, and communities are resilient and thriving—we need to outline actions today that set up success for the next generations.
Our strategic plan guides the current course for our work, building on our decades-long history of success and adapting to the uncertainties we face. As we navigate these changes, we remain dedicated to innovating new ways to meet the needs of the communities we serve and prepare them for what’s to come.Read our 2020-2024 Strategic Plan
Our Areas of Focus
Energy Trust’s 2020-2024 plan outlines five focus areas and the key strategies to guide our programs and outreach efforts. These focus areas align with our core purpose of helping customers and communities reduce energy costs while harnessing the power of energy efficiency and renewable resources.
Our Planning Process
Our strategic planning process is a collaborative effort between our board of directors, staff, the Oregon Public Utility Commission, utilities and other stakeholders.
The process—already underway for our 2025-2029 plan—begins with our annual strategic planning workshop, where the board explores long-term opportunities and challenges. Our strategic planning committee then works closely with stakeholders to develop the draft plan, incorporating public input from the open comment period.
After thorough consideration by all members of the planning committee, a final plan is presented to the Energy Trust board of directors for approval at a public board meeting. The plan reflects our vision for the future and serves as the roadmap for our action plans and initiatives.
