2014 Virginia Energy Plan

Chapter 2 Title 67 of the Code of Virginia instructs the Commonwealth of Virginia to update the Virginia Energy Plan to be submitted by October 1, 2014.  The Virginia Energy Plan is a document that lays out a long-term strategy for the development and growth of the Virginia energy industry. 

Through Executive Order 16, Governor McAuliffe created the Virginia Energy Council to oversee the development of the Virginia Energy Plan.  The Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy (DMME) is the agency that will staff the Virginia Energy Council and receive public input.    

As part of the creation of the 2014 Virginia Plan, the public is encouraged to provide comments, input, and recommendations they wish to be included in the final version of the Energy Plan.  

The deadline for submitting public comment was Friday August 8, 2014 at 5:00pm EST.

If you have any questions please contact the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy at 804-692-3200.

Thank you.
