The Energy and Telecommunications Interim Committee (ETIC) has just released a publication to assist the public in learning about energy issues in Montana.

Understanding Energy in Montana is produced by the Department of Environmental Quality energy staff in cooperation with the ETIC. Last revised in 2010, this 2014 edition focuses on historical and current patterns of energy supply and demand. It is divided into six sections. First is an overview of electricity supply and demand in Montana. The second section covers the electricity transmission system, especially how it works in Montana and the Pacific Northwest. A third section addresses natural gas supply and demand. The fourth section covers the Montana coal industry. The fifth section addresses petroleum, and the final section discusses renewable energy development in Montana and the potential for that sector to grow.
