Energy Pathways Study
On June 28, 2013, the Minneapolis City Council selected the Center for Energy and Environment to complete an Energy Pathways Study that details what the City wants from a sustainable, 21st century energy system and potential options for achieving that system. The consultant’s work will include an Energy Vision and a report that explores the various paths the City could take to achieve its energy goals, including examination of potential utility partnerships, changes to how the City uses energy utility franchise fees, and the potential for municipalization of one or both energy utilities. The Energy Vision will be presented to the City Council in September, and the final report will be completed in early 2014.
On September 9th, the City Council's Regulatory, Energy & Environment Committee moved to accept the Energy Vision. The full City Council will review the VIsion on September 20th at their regularly scheduled meeting.
