Clean Energy’s Impact on Minnesota’s Economy
27 Apr 2023
Unfortunately, the climate doesn’t stop changing when the global economy takes a turn. But Minnesota has continued to outpace the national push for a carbon-neutral economy, according to a recent report.
Minnesota is outranking the national average when it comes to many clean energy milestones. Zero-carbon has provided the majority of Minnesota’s electricity generation for the third year in a row. In 2022, zero-carbon accounted for 55% of the energy supply, well above the national average of 41%, according to the 2023 Minnesota Energy Factsheet produced by Clean Energy Economy MN and the Business Council for Sustainable Energy. The report, which was released Wednesday, outlined data collected by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, BloombergNEF, and the Minnesota Department of Commerce, with support from the McKnight Foundation.
