Iowa’s energy plan is a means to set state priorities and provide strategic guidance for decision-making while working to encourage energy, economic, and environmental benefits through the goals and recommendations it sets forth. It will include an assessment of current and future energy supply and demand, examine existing energy policies and programs, and identify emerging energy challenges and opportunities. The plan will synthesize the existing state energy goals and strategies that are beneficial for the state, as well as outline new objectives and strategies to position Iowa for the future. Read the Iowa Energy Plan vision.
The plan will be built on four foundational pillars. They are – economic development and energy careers; Iowa’s energy resources; transportation and infrastructure; and energy efficiency and conservation.
Working groups were formed to provide input, review data, and shape the goals and strategies of the plan. The working groups focused on the areas of economic development and energy careers, Iowa’s energy resources, transportation and infrastructure, and energy efficiency and conservation with a variety of subtopic focus areas. Learn more about working groups.
Six energy forums were conducted across the state to facilitate public input for the Iowa Energy Plan. Learn more about what people had to say.
