The Oregon Department of Energy is a statewide agency created in 1975.
We have four core agency divisions:
- Nuclear Safety and Emergency Preparedness
- Energy Planning and Innovation
- Energy Facility Siting
- Energy Development Services
We help homeowners
and renters across the state.
ODOE has helped hundreds of thousands of Oregonians heat and
cool their homes more efficiently, weatherize their homes, and move to more
efficient devices. With our guidance, cutting edge energy efficient options have
become commonplace. Since 1978, our residential programs have saved or
displaced enough energy in the state to serve about 400,000 households for one
We help local,
regional, and state public agencies and schools.
We’ve helped state of Oregon agencies reduce energy use and
meet efficiency goals ahead of schedule. Programs designed specifically for
K-12 schools have helped more than 100 districts implement energy efficiency
projects, resulting in more comfortable classrooms and better learning
environments for students and educators.
We help businesses,
farmers, nonprofits, and tribes.
Our technical expertise and financial programs help support
energy conservation, alternative fuel vehicles, and renewable energy
development for businesses, ranchers, farmers, nonprofits, and others who want
to save energy and generate clean power.
We’re ready to serve
Oregon in the future.
Across the state, we’re advancing energy innovation and
accessibility – from energy storage to facility siting and oversight. We
prioritize diversifying Oregon’s energy mix, successfully integrating new
energy sources into the grid, and overseeing nuclear energy safety. We also
support statewide efforts to meet Oregon’s future energy needs and
responsibilities, including pressing issues like climate change.
