The McKnight Foundation, a family-based organization, has been providing grants to initiatives in Minnesota to improve the overall quality of life through everything from the arts to clean energy. The Energy Transition Lab has been fortunate to count itself among those. A new report from Vibrant Clean Energy, commissioned by the McKnight Foundation, reveals that Minnesota can simultaneously reach its greenhouse gas emission reduction rate of 80% by 2050, triple energy jobs, and decrease average household bills. These benefits are just a start, to read more about how McKnight’s energy efforts could inspire a statewide transition to a cleaner and healthier tomorrow click here.

“It is heartening to see this report that presents various scenarios under which the Minnesota economy can be heavily decarbonized, leading to lower cost of electricity to consumers, cleaner air and creation of new jobs,” said Ned Mohan, Oscar A. Schott Professor of Power Electronics and Systems in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Minnesota.
