In October 2011, Governor John Kitzhaber appointed the Ten Year Energy Action Plan Task Force comprised of five Design Teams, Energy Efficiency and Demand Management, Resource Mix, Siting Issues, Transportation and Governance. The Task Force was charged with making recommendations to the Governor on coordinated actions and initiatives that the State of Oregon can take in the next ten years to:
- · Reduce our dependence on carbon-intensive fuels and foreign oil,
- · Develop home-grown renewable energy resources,
- · Mitigate greenhouse gas emissions,
- · Improve energy efficiency and create rewarding local jobs, and
- · Boost Oregon’s economy through investment and innovation.
After reviewing the Task Force recommendations, the Governor issued his proposed Ten Year Energy Action Plan for Oregon on June 5th. Join us and be one of the first to learn more about what the Governor’s strategy will be for the state, ask questions and consider how it will affect energy policy in the years to come.
