On Wednesday, April 30, various stakeholders participated in a forum to discuss the consideration and finalization of the Utah Energy Efficiency and Conservation Plan, developed by the Utah Office of Energy Development.

Governor Gary R. Herbert’s 10-Year Strategic Energy Plan’s sixth recommendation states that “Utah should have a statewide plan for reducing energy consumption.” In order to fulfill this recommendation, in August of 2013 the Governor’s Energy Advisor and the Office of Energy Development launched a truly stakeholder-driven process aimed at creation of the Utah Energy Efficiency and Conservation Plan. The various stakeholders were tasked with developing a specific set of recommendations for programs, public outreach, and policy measures that could help the State realize its energy efficiency and conservation potential. During the collaborative process unfolded, the Plan was organized into the following sectors: 1) Residential and Commercial Buildings, 2) Alternative Transportation and Fuels, 3) Agriculture, 4) Industry and 5) Public Education and Outreach.
