The Shades of Green Forum is a two-day conference that will bring together a diverse group of professionals for a candid discussion about the state of diversity within the energy industry, as well as a facilitated workshop around diversity best practices, strategies and actions.

November Event: What’s all the buzz about energy use and recreational cannabis?

It’s been two years since Oregonians’ voted to follow in our northern neighbor’s footsteps and legalize recreational cannabis use. This week our southern neighbor along with Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine also voted to legalize recreational cannabis use, indicating that the energy use profile of cannabis is likely to be of increasing interest in the coming years. There are many lessons to be learned from the Northwest on the energy impacts of recreational cannabis production.
