Salt Lake City, Utah – Stakeholders and the general public will gather at the Office of Energy Development, 60 East South Temple, Third Floor, and via web at https://connect.usu.edu/utah2014/ from 2-4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, for a Utah Energy Efficiency and Conservation Plan Virtual Town Hall. The town hall will provide a forum in which the public may participate in the consideration and finalization of the EECP’s various recommendations. The event will begin with an overview of the EECP and then allow time for participants to call in, ask questions and make recommendations.
The EECP was created in response to Governor Gary R. Herbert’s 10-Year Strategic Energy Plan, Recommendation 3 of which states that Utah should “have a statewide plan aimed at reducing energy consumption.” This stakeholder-driven effort produced several recommendations for energy efficiency and conservation measures to be implemented for buildings, alternative transportation, industrial, agriculture and public outreach and education.
The Office of Energy Development (OED) was created in 2011, with a mission to provide leadership in the balanced development of Utah’s abundant energy resources, through public and private partnerships that foster economic prosperity, energy independence, and a reliable, affordable energy supply. Through its economic development and policy efforts, OED helps to advance the responsible development and utilization of all energy resource types.
