Date of Current Plan 2008, updated in 2016 (see link below within Status/Summary)
Authoring Agency Department of Commerce and EmPower ND Commission (appointed by Governor Hoeven)

This plan is operational with implementation and on-going planning efforts through the Department of Commerce’s Office of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (OREE).  Its overall purpose is to position North Dakota as a model for America in the development of innovative, long-term energy resources and to capitalize on its diverse set of energy resources.  This plan also aims to double energy production from all sources by 2025; derive at least 25% of energy produced from RE by 2025; export capacity to 4,000 MW; produce 135 million gallons of biodiesel by 2015; increase natural gas processed in-state by 64% (75 billion cubic feet per year by 2012); and produce 175,000 barrels of oil a day.

An update to this plan was released in 2016: Empower North Dakota, 2016 Energy Policy Updates and Recommendations
