We use energy every day in our homes, offices, factories and outdoors. We rely on it in our daily lives to heat and cool our spaces, light our rooms, drive cars, move freight and manufacture products. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is focused on affordable and reliable energy produced in Missouri. The department provides education and promotes efficient use of energy resources for economic growth, a healthy environment and a better Missouri for future generations. We coordinate the state’s energy policy and work to support a strong, comprehensive, coordinated energy plan for Missouri. 

The department is also a state resource for energy data and research and supports market development and demonstration projects promoting clean energy sources and technologies. The department coordinates with private and public interests on energy initiatives and provides technical and financial assistance for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements. With its large, highly educated workforce, strategic location, low business costs, clean energy initiative and plentiful natural resources, Missouri is perfectly positioned to take advantage of advances in alternative energy in the wind, solar and biofuel sectors.
