Montana Renewable Resource Development
Action Plan

​The State of Montana and the Bonneville Power Administration are partnering to host a series of conversations focused on developing a sustainable long-term strategy to support developing new renewable energy resources in Montana. We hope to foster regional understanding of the opportunities and barriers to energy development of renewable resources in Montana. They also will lead to better understanding by all parties of what is needed to successfully develop additional Montana energy resources.  
Specific outcomes we expect to focus on:

  1. Identify opportunities/markets associated with Montana renewable energy exports; 
  2. Identify barriers and possible solutions to transmission and market access; 
  3. Scope costs and risks to all parties associated with potential solutions; and 
  4. Identify and recommend appropriate forums and leaders to address identified barriers.
