Energy Planning

From energy conservation to resource development, MORPC’s energy expertise is available to assist the region in their efforts to develop sustainable and resilient energy systems as we prepare for the future.

Our region has a myriad of goals and priorities when it comes to energy. To meet our members where they are, MORPC has developed a roadmap to guide them through our energy planning services.


Energy Data and Analysis Program

Providing the foundation for continuous improvement. The Energy Data and Analysis program calculates energy values to assist with policy decisions.

Every MORPC member receives an annual report of:

  • Current, previous, and future data for energy production, consumption, expenditures, and emissions across all sectors
  • Equity metrics including energy burden ​
