The 100% clean energy bill requires all Minnesota electric utilities to use only carbon-free energy by 2040. Achieving 100% carbon-free energy by 2040 will set a clear and achievable goal for utilities to reach – a goal our business members look forward to helping them achieve.
On January 11, 2023 CEEM and five business members gave a presentation on the business case for clean energy to the House and Senate energy committees at the Minnesota Legislature. Business leaders discussed job creation, building decarbonization, the importance of transmission and permitting reform, hydrogen and emerging technologies, the EV transition, and an overview of how Minnesota can create an Energy Alley.
With a projected $17.6 billion surplus we can catapult our state back to its status as the clean energy leader in the Midwest and the country.

The 2023 Legislative Preview event on Friday, December 9 was to present CEEM’s clean energy champion awards and hear from legislative leaders about their expectations for the upcoming sessions.

CEEM is disappointed legislative leaders and the Walz-Flanagan Administration could not come to an agreement to pass critically important funding for Minnesota’s clean energy future. Over the next few months, we will be working to educate candidates and will be engaging our members to participate in this candidate education process to set up the clean energy community for success in 2023 and beyond.
