Abstract:
Energy impacts Utah’s quality of life in many ways. Affordable energy helps maintain a lower cost of living, allowing Utah’s residents and businesses to have more flexibility in their budgets for spending, investing and saving. Additionally, energy and minerals production can continue to provide abundant opportunities for jobs and economic development in the state, especially in many of Utah’s rural communities.

As Utah’s population is set to double by 2050, our energy demands will increase. The Governor’s Office of Energy Development (OED) holds that even with Utah’s expected growth, clean air, water, and other important state environmental goals can be achieved alongside state goals for advancing responsible energy and minerals development.

To that end, the State of Utah has developed and implemented a suite of market-based incentives and financing programs to drive investment in innovation and infrastructure that support the overall economy.
