In response to historic storms in the winter of 2021, Governor Asa Hutchinson created the Arkansas Energy Resources Council (ERC) under Executive Order 21-21. Its creation was a recommendation of the Arkansas Energy Resources Planning Task Force, established by Governor Hutchinson to examine vulnerabilities in energy resources and infrastructure, delivery of energy and business closures during extreme events, and Arkansas’s energy resilience. The purpose of the ERC is to facilitate ongoing technical and policy discussion among regulators and energy stakeholders. The ERC is mandated to produce educational materials on the best practices for preparedness and communication surrounding the disruption or anticipated disruption of critical energy resources. This webpage is hosted by the Arkansas Department of Energy and Environment (E&E) to provide access to the educational materials ordered by Executive Order 21-21.
