The Michigan Agency for Energy's purpose is to set Michigan on a path toward affordable, reliable energy. It serves as a single entity dedicated to provide all of state government the information and context they need to support Michigan's energy priorities. Valerie Brader is its executive director, serving as the state's chief adviser regarding the development of energy policies and programs.
The Michigan Agency for Energy brings together the Air Policy Director and the Retired Engineers Technical Assistance Program from the Department of Environmental Quality; the Michigan Energy Office from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation; and the Michigan Public Service Commission. The Commission will continue to operate autonomously from the Agency.
