The Washington State Energy Office provides energy policy support, analysis, and information for the Governor, Legislature, Commerce and other energy decision makers. We look at key energy issues including natural gas, alternative fuels, energy efficiency, renewable energy development, greenhouse gas emissions, energy supply and price.
The State Energy Program emphasizes our role as the decision maker and administrator for the program activities within the state. We are a vital resource for delivering energy benefits, addressing state energy goals and coordinating energy-related emergency preparedness in the state.
Our team provides technical and policy support to Washington members of the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, other state agencies and state congressional officials on federal and regional energy policies and legislation. We provide financial and technical assistance through funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The 2013 state capital budget included funding for various clean energy projects in the state to be administered by us. This includes a revolving loan fund; smart grid grants to utilities; federal grant matching funds; returning recovery act funds; and, energy efficiency and solar grants for public buildings.
