Energy Transition Lab


The Energy Transition Lab (ETL) engages university and external experts to catalyze solutions to rapidly reduce carbon emissions and create Minnesota’s clean energy future. We aim to make Minnesota’s energy systems into a global model for developing a prosperous and equitable carbon-neutral economy that advances innovation and improves people’s lives and the environment.

The Energy Transition Lab is part of the Institute on the Environment (IonE), which has committed to championing carbon neutrality for Minnesota as one of three strategic sustainability goals IonE will pursue over three years. IonE is a university-wide unit dedicated to fostering interdisciplinarity, translational knowledge and leadership development to help build a future where people and the planet prosper together.  (Learn More!)
