Our goal: make Washington the best place to develop innovative ideas and launch innovative companies. With a focus on clean energy Innovate Washington, in conjunction with the Clean Energy Partnership, is charged with leveraging Washington’s competitive clean energy sector assets to achieve sustainable job growth for the region.
One project of Innovate Washington and i6 Green Challenge Grant partners, is The Northwest Building Energy Technology Hub (NBETH): a statewide proof-of-concept center for building energy technology development and commercial acceleration. NBETH coordinates existing assets to create a network of technology demonstration sites for building efficiency solutions and provides the physical space and data capability to monitor, optimize and aggregate those test sites to create an integrated regional hub. It serves entrepreneurs, investors, industry leaders, researchers and the public by bridging the data and communication gaps between and among existing and new building innovations.
