Navigating and addressing rural and remote energy issues is a key priority for State Energy Offices as they seek to advance their states’ energy affordability, resiliency, reliability, decarbonization, and economic development goals. Specific topics of interest include the energy-agriculture nexus, clean energy project and infrastructure siting, economic development and workforce opportunities, community engagement, energy program and project development, and partnerships with other state agencies, the federal government, and the private sector. To identify and address these areas, State Energy Offices are setting up programs targeting rural and remote communities, establishing advisory task forces and committees, conducting feasibility studies, and bringing on staff to facilitate energy outreach. The recent influx of federal funding has also provided additional pathways for states to support rural and remote communities in addressing their energy needs.
