Description

WIEB is an organization of eleven Western States and three Western Canadian Provinces.  Board members are appointed by the governor of each state and the premier of each province. The WIEB Compact states that the purpose of the Board is to provide the instruments and framework for cooperative state efforts to “enhance the economy of the West and contribute to the well-being of the region’s people.” The Board seeks to achieve this purpose by promoting energy policy that is developed cooperatively among member states and provinces and with the federal government.
