RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Terry McAuliffe has established the Virginia Energy Council to develop an energy strategy for the state.

The governor issued an executive order Wednesday creating the council of 20 to 25 members. He says the council will deliver recommendations for the state's energy plan, which will be submitted to the General Assembly in October.

McAuliffe said the state must develop an aggressive strategy to maintain jobs in the energy sector and to be a leader in new energy technologies.

He said the state should speed development of renewable energy such as solar and offshore wind, look for energy efficiencies and promote a diverse portfolio of energy sources.
