States play an important role in shaping our energy choices through a range of policy, regulatory and budgetary actions including: prioritizing resource use; setting prices; permitting generation, production and transmission; funding and performing research and technology development; providing financing and incentives; developing refueling infrastructure; sponsoring demonstration projects; and promoting economic development initiatives.
