Energy development is a regional and national priority and the MonDak region is uniquely positioned as key player in building a bridge to our energy future.
The MonDak Energy Alliance is the catalyst for developing the vision and moving the region forward, realizing the full potential of energy development in the area. The Alliance fills this role by:
- Communicating the Vision
- Facilitating Communication
- Conducting Meetings and Networking
The MonDak Energy Alliance includes the geography of eastern Montana and western North Dakota and is intended to leverage the resources, businesses and politics of the two states to build our energy future.
Accomplishments & Initiatives
The Alliance has grown from the seed of an idea to a key catalyst for energy development in the MonDak region. Below is a list of several of the key accomplishments and initiatives including past presentations.
