Eastern Idaho is uniquely positioned as the “carbon-free energy capital of the world.” The region has the distinction of being one of the few places in the world where you can find biomass, solar, wind, hydro, and nuclear energy. Eighty-two percent of the electricity generated in Idaho comes from carbon-free energy, second only to Vermont.
Wind powered energy sources sustain fifteen percent of the state's electricity. Idaho National Laboratory, along with NuScale’s first-in-kind small modular reactor, and the ability to coordinate with the Center for Advanced Energy Studies and five universities makes Eastern Idaho the perfect location for the development of innovative ideas and new technologies around carbon-free energy.
Eastern Idaho leads in developing cutting-edge technologies and new energy sources to reduce the load on the energy grid.
Eastern Idaho is proud to be home to companies and organizations that produce high tech products, processes, and delivery of carbon-free power, such as:
Eastern Idaho is positioned along the I-15 Corridor. It is home to corporations and institutions with engineering and scientific know-how on the cutting-edge of developing new and innovative energy technologies.
These are just a few companies that continue to change the Energy sector in Eastern Idaho.
