State Energy Assurance Guidelines

The State Energy Assurance Guidelines were developed by the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) with the assistance of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) under the direction of the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE). The guidelines integrate the lessons learned from responding to energy emergencies in recent years and from the dialogue that has occurred at conferences, exercises and meetings on energy assurance. They encompass many topics that states may wish to consider incorporating into their plans. Foremost among these is how energy assurance can improve: planning and responding quickly and effectively to energy emergencies, enhancing the resiliency of our response capability, reductions in the risk and vulnerability of critical energy infrastructure, and investments in the resiliency of the energy infrastructure.
