Something Missing?

Email the Technical Response Service or call 800-254-6735.

The Washington Department of Commerce must establish the Office of Renewable Energy (Office) to leverage, support, and collaborate with other state agencies to:

  • Accelerate market development by providing assistance along the entire life cycle of renewable fuel projects;
  • Support research on the development and deployment of renewable fuel and use of renewable and green electrolytic hydrogen;
  • Drive job creation, improve economic vitality, and support the transition to clean energy;
  • Enhance resiliency by using renewable fuels and green electrolytic hydrogen to support climate change mitigation and adaptations; and,
  • Partner with underserved communities to ensure communities equitably benefit from clean fuel efforts.
The Office must compile data regarding the use of renewable fuels and green electrolytic hydrogen in state operations, including motor vehicle fleets, the state ferry system, and non-road equipment.
