The Office of Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency (OREE) has a variety of programs that promote energy efficiency and renewable energy activities within the state.

The focus of these programs is to promote energy efficiency in both the public and private sectors and to facilitate the development and use of renewable energy sources within the state.

State Energy Program (SEP)
The SEP's mission is to promote energy conservation and efficiency, and reduce the rate of growth of energy demand by developing and implementing a comprehensive state energy plan supported by federal financial and technical assistance.

Weatherization Assistance
The Department of Energy's Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program works to increase the energy efficiency of homes owned or occupied by low-income persons, reducing their total residential energy expenditures and improving their health and safety.

Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant
The EECBG is a program funded by the ARRA. It provides funds to cities and counties in North Dakota for energy efficiency retrofits to government owned buildings.

Ethanol Production Incentive
The ethanol production incentive currently in place for North Dakota is a counter-cyclical program. This means it helps producers during adverse times when ethanol prices are unusually low and/or corn prices are unusually high.

Biofuels Blender Pump Program
This program offers funds to retailers to help alleviate the costs of installing blender fuel pumps. Blender pumps offer drivers a blend of ethanol fuel choices.

Renewable Energy
Renewable energy solutions in North Dakota include wind power, biomass energy, alternative fuels, ethanol, geothermal applications and solar energy.
