OEMR works with state and federal stakeholders to develop and utilize Idaho’s energy and mineral resources in an efficient, effective, and responsible manner that serves to enhance the state’s economy and sustain the quality of life for its citizens.

It coordinates efforts with federal and state agencies, departments and divisions, and local governments on issues concerning energy requirements, supply, transmission, management, conservation, and efficiency efforts as well as mineral supply, management, acquisition, and development. OEMR also administers energy efficiency programs, including Government Leading by Example and the State Energy Loan Program.
