Tactical Action Plan: Powering the Energy Frontier: An Appendix to the Strategic Roadmap 2024 [open pdf - 8MB]
"Western Area Power Administration, a power marketing administration within the Department of Energy, markets and transmits more than 30 billion kilowatt-hours of wholesale federal hydroelectric power through an integrated 17,000-plus circuit mile transmission system across 15 central and western states. We sell this power to more than 680 preference power customers including cooperatives, federal and state agencies, municipalities, Native American tribes, public utility and irrigation districts and other energy service providers. In addition, Western provides for the purchase and exchange of electric resources, operations and maintenance services, transmission system interconnections, shared capacity and use of transmission facilities, and joint construction opportunities. Western published its latest strategic plan in May 2014, which is comprised of Strategic Roadmap 2024 and this appendix. The Strategic Roadmap outlines four foundational Critical Pathways for the next 10 years. Western will review and refresh the Strategic Roadmap every other year to ensure we remain focused on meeting our customers' needs, aligned with DOE goals and responsive to industry change."
