A Report from Missouri’s Department of Natural Resources:
The State of Missouri has released a Summary and Action Report for the Missouri State Energy Planning (MoSEP) process. The report summarizes activity that occurred in association with the October 29, 2020, kickoff meeting of the MoSEP process, as well as their plans for additional engagement.
Based on stakeholder feedback and the market-driven transformation already underway in the energy sector, the MoSEP process will be pursued through a series of regionally focused initiatives unified by a state-level “value statement.” The core values of the process are to:
Assure secure, reliable and resilient energy infrastructure and supplies.
Enhance Missouri’s competitive position in business retention, expansion and attraction through affordable rates and renewable energy options.
Develop diverse in-state energy resources.
Create opportunities for energy-related technological innovation and workforce development.
Ensure affordability and equity in access to energy resources, services and programs.
Promote the efficient and environmentally sound use of energy.
The regionally focused initiatives will target regional energy opportunities and topics of interest. Metrics will measure success toward achieving the goals in the statewide value statement. A report will be prepared for each initiative.
The state encourages interested partied to engage in the next steps in the MoSEP process. Please reach out firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, ideas or to indicate if you want to be involved in a particular region’s proceedings (if you have not already done so). Stay tuned to the MoSEP website for additional information.
