Insights and Impact Forum: Electrification and Equity
March 30 | 9-11AM
Minnesota is in the process of electrification – replacing technologies that use fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) with those that are powered by electricity.
As part of a two-year process to engage stakeholders on the challenges and opportunities of electrification, the Minnesota Department of Commerce (DOC) commissioned a series of white-papers to develop policy analysis and policy recommendations for electrification related to equity, housing, transportation, and working in partnership with Tribal Nations.
Join Environmental Initiative to engage with DOC staff and white-paper authors about:
- Policy, economic, and societal barriers to equitable electrification and how they can be addressed.
- Ways we can work across sectors and across differences to equitably advance electrification and decarbonization of the economy.
- Recent policy progress made on electrification, including the “Energy Conservation and Optimization Act” (ECO Act).
- Next steps and near-term priorities for electrification policy and program development in Minnesota.
This event is free of charge, although a $30 donation is suggested.
