The EmPower North Dakota Commission strives to advance all energy sectors in North Dakota.

In 2007, the North Dakota Legislature formalized energy policy and created the 16-member EmPower Commission.  This group is charged with developing comprehensive energy policy recommendations for the state's diverse and growing energy industry. The commission is made up of representatives from all the state's energy industries and is a model of how differing interests can come together for the good of an industry.
The EmPower Commission released a policy update and recommendation report in July 2016. This report is available below and provides the basis for possible legislation to continue to support the energy industry in North Dakota.
