This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Utah is an energy-rich state with vast traditional and renewable resources. The opportunities to explore and develop new technologies will help maintain and grow Utah’s position as an energy leader. Energy Advisor to the Governor and Director of the Utah Office of Energy Development Greg Todd joins us with more.


Over the last year, energy development and where we get our energy have become more important than ever. It’s easy to forget about the work that goes into keeping our lights on and our homes armed against extreme temperatures, but without the hard work that goes on behind the scenes, we would all be in the dark.

Energy technologies are continually developing, and with those advancements come changes – it is our commitment to ensure those changes, which some people call a transition, don’t negatively affect affordability or reliability.

Our state energy and innovation plan provides six guidelines for how the state plans to keep that commitment, and we encourage you to learn more about them at


The Utah Office of Energy Development remains committed to advancing Utah’s energy and minerals economies to create affordable, reliable, and sustainable outcomes that provide significant and lasting value to the state. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
