Department of Commerce
Our office provides energy policy support, analysis, and information for the Governor, Legislature, Commerce, and others. We review key energy issues including natural gas, alternative fuels, energy efficiency, renewable energy development, greenhouse gas emissions, energy supply, and prices. 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. We manage the Washington State Energy Program projects and the Clean Energy Fund programs 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.
