Lignite Energy Council

Lignite Energy Council’s primary objective is to maintain a viable regional lignite coal industry and enhance development of America's lignite coal resources for use in generating electricity, synthetic natural gas and valuable byproducts.

Based in North Dakota, members of the Lignite Energy Council include mining companies, major users that use lignite to generate electricity, synthetic natural gas and other valuable byproducts, and businesses that provide goods and services to the lignite industry.

At the heart of the Lignite Energy Council’s efforts are programs covering four separate areas:


  • Government action
  • Research& Development
  • Education
  • PublicRelations & Marketing

Through these programs, the Council provides timely, accurate information that enables elected officials, government leaders and the public to make sound, informed decisions on lignite issues.

The R&D program is a joint venture between industry and the State of North Dakota. The program helps maintain jobs, increase economic activity and tax revenue to the state and local government entities. As regulations are implemented to reduce emissions from existing power plants, research and development activities that lead to new novel technologies become increasingly important.
