Last month Energy Transition Lab Executive Director Ellen Anderson presented to the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society on the future of Energy Transition in Minnesota as well as the work that the Energy Transition Lab and University of Minnesota Researchers have been doing related to understanding Energy Transition. 

The Minnesota Renewable Energy Society (MRES) is a Minneapolis non-profit organization which works to promote the use of renewable energy sources in Minnesota through education and demonstration of practical applications.

In her speech Ellen Anderson spoke about the work that the Energy Transition Lab is doing to leverage the expertise of University of Minnesota Researchers and facilitate collaboration between the public and private sectors to promote economic development, resiliency and sustainability as our energy system transitions towards the future. In her presentation on Energy Transition in Minnesota and beyond Ellen provided an updated presentation of her talk “Top 10 Ideas for our Energy Transitions”  and provided an overview of the history and future of energy transition globally, nationally and locally in Minnesota.
