Oregon BEST supports great ideas from entrepreneurs, university researchers, and startups. We help businesses get off the ground while developing promising new technologies that benefit both the economy and the environment. Oregon's innovations save resources and create jobs, making our state more sustainable and resilient. When innovators thrive, Oregon thrives.
Innovative technology is needed to meet global targets for reducing carbon emissions. Clean energy, clean fuels, clean transportation, and other clean technologies help reduce our reliance on non-renewable resources. These economically competitive solutions produce less waste and use less energy than traditional alternatives.
