The Oregon State Energy Assurance Plan provided an overview of Oregon's energy infrastructure, profiled the state's energy resources, and identified system interdependencies. The Oregon Department of Energy is working on a new Oregon Energy Security Plan, to be published in 2024.
The Oregon State Energy Assurance Plan was published in 2012, so much of the information is now obsolete, but it provides historical context and background.
The Oregon Department of Energy is working on a new Oregon Energy Security Plan that will identify risks to electricity, liquid fuel, and natural gas/propane systems, and propose ways to mitigate those risks. Learn more.
The 2012 Plan evaluated potential risks and hazards that could threaten the state’s critical energy infrastructure, and offered solutions to reducing those risks. The OSEAP included strategies and procedures that would minimize the effects of energy supply interruptions and ensure rapid restoration of the energy infrastructure for public health and safety. The OSEAP increased awareness of the state’s energy lifeline risks and the plan to restore fuel, power, and natural gas in the event of an emergency.
