Several northern Minnesota tribes interested in building a common foundation for strategic tribal energy capacity have banded together for strategic energy resource planning. This collaborative will focus on four areas:
Education — raising community awareness about energy issues;
Assessment — identification and assessment of the basic on reservation energy flow and consumption patterns, and the potential for energy policy development;
Strategic planning — development of tribal energy visions and outlining long-term strategic energy planning; and
Organizational development — development of model organizational documents, such as codes and policies, to promote the formation of tribal utility institutions.
