I-WEST Partner States


The Intermountain West Energy Sustainability & Transitions (I-WEST) initiative is developing a technology roadmap to transition the region to an economically sustainable, carbon neutral energy system. The roadmap will outline ways for the Intermountain West states to meet challenges, capitalize on opportunities, and build an equitable energy transition strategy.




Working with the I-WEST initiative, CERPA conducts interdisciplinary research to produce value-added surveys, publications, and discussions on energy-related policy, law, and regulatory issues in Wyoming.
