Idaho Chapter

The CleanTech Alliance is excited to announce a new official chapter in the State of Idaho. For the past three years, the Alliance has been working with clean energy companies and leaders in Idaho to explore partnership opportunities. Out of those discussions and events, it became clear that an official Idaho Chapter of the CleanTech Alliance will be the most effective way to advance the Alliance’s, members’ and partners’ goals in the state.

Seal of the State of Idaho

The Idaho Chapter of the CleanTech Alliance is based in Boise and has its own Board of Directors that sets priorities specific to the advancement of Idaho CleanTech Alliance members’ goals. The Idaho Chapter seeks to drive innovation for clean energy in Idaho by bringing together government entities, businesses, and nonprofit leaders to position Idaho as a clean energy leader and pave the way for a prosperous, secure, and healthy future. To realize this goal, the CleanTech Alliance staff and Idaho Chapter Board of Directors will raise initial funds for a part-time staff member and programs dedicated to Idaho-specific goals.

Policy & Government Affairs Committee

The Idaho CleanTech Alliance Policy & Government Affairs Committee analyzes public policy issues relevant to its diverse Idaho membership, then articulates recommendations to the Idaho Board of Directors and eventually to the Alliance Board for an Alliance position. It is through these efforts that the strength of a collective industry voice can have greater impact than any singular voice.

The Idaho Government Affairs Committee meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 9:00am Pacific (10:00am Mountain Time). Contact to learn more.
