The overall mission of the Energy Division, as the State Energy Office, is to increase energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption, promote energy-efficiency and renewable-energy technologies, make energy efficiency more affordable for low-income residents, and to aid low-income households, especially those with vulnerable populations such as elderly, disabled and young children, with the increasing costs of home energy.

Even with those duties, the division’s responsibilities have expanded to areas beyond energy in the past several years to include other programs to improve Alabama and the lives of Alabamians.

Programs administered by this division include low-income assistance programs that help individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency, assist with energy bills, and help weatherize homes:

  • Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)
  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • Weatherization Assistance Program

The division also manages and provides information under Energy Programs:

  • Energy Programs
  • Alabama Emergency and Assurance Plan
  • State Buildings Program
  • Alternative Transportation Fuels Program
  • Local Government Energy Loan Program
  • Industrial Energy Efficiency Program

Many other programs are also managed and administered by ADECA’s Energy Division, including:

  • Alabama Space Authority
  • Alabama Research and Development Enhancement Fund Program (ARDEF)
  • Alabama Inland Port Infrastructure Program
