What pathways exist to a clean energy economy? Are they realistic for Minnesota? At this bipartisan forum, featured speakers will share examples of what is working and not working within international, national, and local energy systems.
We’ll explore policy options and discuss first-hand with legislators and other decision-makers the challenges and opportunities for applying certain pathways to Minnesota’s energy economy.
Program sessions throughout the day will bring varied perspectives together for discussion and group input on the ultimate question: How do we chose to lead this energy transition?
