State Energy Planning

Missouri Energy Initiative has been a the forefront of efforts for the state to adopt and implement a state energy plan and a process to update the plan over time as a roadmap to energy affordability, security, and resilience.  State energy plans help to build consensus among stakeholders, bring transparency to decision-making, effectively prioritize energy policies & programs, enhance accountability, and smooth implementation.  Adoption of state energy plans is connected to economic growth.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources held two rounds of stakeholder meetings as part of the Division of Energy's Missouri State Energy Planning (MoSEP) process.  The MoSEP process will identify and address topics critical to Missouri's current and future energy needs through an ongoing series of stakeholder workshops.  Learn more about MoDNR's current planning effort HERE and check out their Energy Data Dashboard to learn more about the state's energy landscape.
