Minnesota’s Clean Energy Future series

How will Minnesota achieve a clean energy economy?

Make sense of the many approaches and pathways to achieving a clean energy economy in Minnesota. This series of events, which began in June 2019, will dive deep into key issues facing our state, such as electrification, energy storage, equity in energy transition, multi-sector carbon reduction, and renewable and clean energy standards. Check out the full-length report, prepared for the June 14, 2019 event.

Our Mission

Create meaningful bipartisan and cross-sector forums, where statewide leaders can access cutting-edge information and ideas, build their networks, and explore pathways to a clean energy future.

Who Attends?

Influential energy leaders: statewide legislators and city officials, practitioners from around the world, corporate and nonprofit decision-makers, and the Institute’s robust network of researchers and academic experts.

A Distinctive Forum

As a land-grant research university, the University of Minnesota serves the state – and follows the facts. Neutral and nonpartisan, we are uniquely positioned to convene a critical mass of Minnesota’s energy leaders.
