Empowering the Nation

The Energy State

With abundant natural resources and deep energy expertise, Wyoming is leading the way to the next-generation energy economy. Wyoming powers the nation – 90% of our energy generating products are exported to markets outside our state borders. As consumer sentiment changes and the demand for low-emissions energy products increase, the Wyoming Energy Authority has developed a cohesive response to evolving market conditions.

All-of-the-Above Strategy

Wyoming’s energy strategy focuses on empowering the nation with a net-zero energy mix. This includes harnessing the full value of our energy resources with an “all-of-the-above” energy mix: products from our legacy industries, along with the newer players of renewable energy and emerging opportunities in hydrogen, advanced modular nuclear, geothermal, and rare earth elements.

Leading the Way

In pursuit of net-zero energy goals, Wyoming can continue to deliver reliable and affordable energy to our nation. Our state’s highly trained workforce stands ready to put new technologies into action, and decades of policy work and strategic investments have positioned Wyoming as the premier location for transformative energy research and technology commercialization.

Current Initiatives

We work collaboratively across organizations in multiple areas all around the state. By setting an overarching goal without directing other agencies and organizations to pursue specific assignments, we’re able to draw on their strengths and expertise to advance our strategy.
