Event description

Description

Minnesota faces the twin challenges of accelerating greenhouse gas emissions reductions to meet statutory 2050 goals, and the potential retirement of over 4,000 MW of existing baseload power generation in the next 20 years. Meeting these challenges will require the integration of significant amounts of new clean energy onto the electricity grid while maintaining reliable and efficient operations. The state may face planning, integration, and operational challenges as the grid undergoes this transition.

The McKnight Foundation welcomes your participation in a series of informational forums that will bring together local and national experts to learn from experiences in other states, explore the capabilities of new technologies to meet energy system needs, and discuss the challenges and opportunities of a transitioning energy system. By planning ahead, we believe that Minnesota can continue to demonstrate clean energy leadership while maintaining an energy system that meets the needs of our growing economy.

Traditional utility system planning methods and modeling tools may not adequately account for the role that new grid resources (solar, energy efficiency, demand response) can play to meet grid needs. This forum will explore alternatives and highlight case studies where other tools are in use today.

An updated agenda will be available as we get closer to the forum
