Looking for 2019 Advisory Committee documents? These are now available on neea.org.

The purpose of the Regional Emerging Technology Advisory Committee (RETAC) is to provide NEEA with broad based advice, experience and feedback to increase the regional market availability of emerging technologies.  This feedback will be used to advise NEEA’s on this work to achieve the organization’s strategic goals, priorities and objectives for evaluating and promoting energy-efficient emerging technologies. In addition to assisting NEEA’s emerging technologies activities, the Committee is to provide regional visibility, advice on resource allocation, and feedback on emerging technologies that provide the highest benefit for the region. 
RETAC has worked to improve the level of regional collaboration around emerging technologies, an effort collectively known as “RETAC 2.0”.
