Event Details

What grid services are required from a 21st century electric system, and what mix of low carbon technologies and approaches can provide those?

That's one of the key questions before Minnesota's electric system stakeholders as the state's utilities prepare resource plans that will bring us into the 2030's. Nearly all of Minnesota’s power sector CO2 emissions come from fossil-fueled plants that are retiring or retriable within or soon after the time period of these forthcoming resource plans. This timeframe also sees the potential retirement of existing nuclear capacity and the addition of new generation from electrification. Meanwhile, utilities will also be filing integrated distribution plans, broading the conversation around resource planning in Minnesota.

This e21 Forum will unpack and explore Integrated Systems Planning in Minnesota, seeking to generate discussion around what mix of low-carbon technologies and approaches can provide the services required by a 21st-century electric system.
