The Blueprint, developed through a process that included research, regional roundtables, and the creation of an Energy Advisory Council comprising representatives from the energy offices of each of the 13 Appalachian states and the local development districts, provides a strategic framework for the creation of energy-related job opportunities through the stimulation of sustainable energy production, efficiency, and innovation efforts in the Appalachian Region. The Blueprint focuses on promoting energy efficiency; increasing the use of renewable energy resources; and developing conventional energy resources, especially advanced clean coal.
