The Department of Energy (DOE) reported that it will be using the so-called “nine strategic directions” as the foundation of its national energy plan for 2016 to 2030.
During its briefing to the Senate Committee on Energy, DOE Undersecretary Jesus Posadas said that the Department’s main thrust for the succeeding years is to ensure energy security, which includes the improvement in reliability, availability and resiliency of existing power infrastructure and facilities.
The other items in the DOE strategic directions are the expansion of energy access, promotion of a low-carbon future, ensuring the investment in power infrastructure and facilities, and pursuing the development and implementation of local energy plans.
DOE also committed to implement and monitor sectoral road maps and action plans, push for the passage of the department’s legislative agenda, strengthen consumer welfare and protection, and lastly, foster stronger international relations and partnerships.
Particulars of these strategic directions include separate plans for power development, distribution, transmission, missionary and household electrification.
