Minnesota Energy Future Study


Legislation passed in 2013 requires the Department of Commerce to develop the scope for a Minnesota Energy Future Study of how the state can transition to a sustainable energy system that does not rely on fossil fuels (Scoping for Renewable Energy Study: MN Laws 2013, Chapter 85 HF 729, Article 12, Section 7). The Department of Commerce must report the results of the scoping process to the Legislative Energy Commission by January 1, 2014.
