Energy comes in many forms including solar panels, wind turbines, gasoline, electric charging stations, electricity, nuclear and the sun.

In furthering Governor Parson’s priorities of infrastructure, workforce development and government efficiency, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources invites you to participate in the Missouri State Energy Planning (MoSEP) process. The MoSEP process will identify and address topics critical to Missouri's current and future energy needs through an ongoing series of stakeholder engagement workshops. The first Summary and Action Report for the MoSEP process summarizes activity that occurred in association with the Oct. 29, 2020 kickoff meeting of the MoSEP process, as well as our plan for additional engagement.

Following two rounds of regional meetings, the department identified stakeholder-suggested initiatives for Cycle 1 of the MoSEP process based on criteria presented during the regional meetings. These criteria include the relation of initiatives to the six statewide core values for the MoSEP process, having an initiative “champion” to partner with the department, and being regionally relevant, consensus-based (to the greatest extent possible), actionable, time-bound, and measurable. Formal workgroups will address some of these initiatives in order to create Summary and Action Reports for Cycle 1, while exploratory workgroups will further develop other initiatives in preparation for their consideration during Cycle 2.
