The WRP Energy Committee in 2016-2017 will:

  • Support the 2016-2017 WRP Regional Assessment Report (see WRP Steering Committee) by exploring relevant WRP Partners’ energy-related issues and needs and identifying potential resources available to address them. Additional issues and recommendations may also result from the Regional Assessment.
  • Continue to share information on new renewable energy projects and transmission lines and highlight State, Federal and Tribal energy planning efforts and resources in the WRP Region
  • Enhance WRP Partner awareness of new energy generation and transmission planning processes and opportunities for engagement to address/mitigate mission impacts, especially those impacts on the military’s ability to test and train, natural and cultural resources, and Tribal lands
