Louisiana Department of Natural Resources
The Southeast Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership is supported by the Louisiana Dept. of Natural Resources’ (LDNR’s) Technology Assessment Division, Louisiana’s State Energy Office. The mission of LDNR is to ensure and promote sustainable and responsible use of the natural resources of our state so that they are available for the enjoyment and benefit of our citizens now and in the future, and to preserve and enhance the nonrenewable natural resources of the state, consisting of land, water, oil, gas and other minerals through conservation, regulation, management and development to ensure that the state of Louisiana realizes appropriate economic benefit from its asset base. Within LDNR, the State Energy Office promotes the efficient use and management of energy in the state. It helps maximize Louisiana’s energy potential by exploring all energy sources and by reducing current energy consumption through education, energy-use studies, and demonstrations of energy-efficient technologies. LDNR’s State Energy Office also serves as the primary manager of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.
