Strategic Energy Planning

Icon of a meeting for Strategic Energy Planning

Comprehensive strategic energy planning, whether at the state, local, or tribal level, is a critical building block for sound energy management and for advancing a clean energy economy in your jurisdiction. Use these resources—including step-by-step guides, tools, templates, trends, and examples—to develop a strategic energy plan.

A strategic energy plan is not a static document but rather a long-term blueprint to focus and guide efforts and actions toward a defined energy vision. A comprehensive energy plan helps governments build on initial energy successes by moving from single projects and programs to a long-term energy strategy that delivers benefits for years to come.
