Working Groups

The Division of Energy established six technical Working Groups composed of interested and knowledgeable stakeholders who are being asked to identify research information, published papers, and data that will help inform and direct development of the plan. Working Groups may also be asked to help draft and/or review topic-specific sections of the plan. The topical areas of the six technical Working Groups correspond to the energy topics identified in Executive Order 14-06.
