Montana Energy Currents
Providing regular updates on the state of energy development in Montana
The Energy Promotion and Development Bureau in the Montana Department of Commerce works to assist in the creation of high quality energy-related jobs and enhance domestic energy security by working directly with private industry, local & regional economic development organizations, as well as with state, federal, and tribal governments to facilitate, promote and develop energy projects throughout Montana. In addition, EPD strives to provide relevant and up to date information for energy developers, policy makers, and citizens of the Big Sky state.
In order to better communicate the current status of energy development across the state, EPD has created a new electronic publication, Montana Energy Currents, that will provide a brief, regular, and data driven analysis of energy issues impacting the state.
