Archived: 07/01/2017

The Governor's Clean Energy Technology Collaborative (Collaborative) was created for experts to discuss issues that impact the development of new clean energy technologies that use Minnesota expertise, Minnesota resources, and benefit Minnesota by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The Collaborative provides the governor with advice and recommendations on matters relating to advances in technology and research to achieve Minnesota's long-term clean energy goals, including reducing GHG emissions by 80% by 2050 and generating 25% of Minnesota energy from renewable energy resources by the year 2025. For more information on Minnesota's long-term clean energy goals and guidance on ways to achieve these goals, refer to the Clean Energy Technology Roadmap. (Reference Executive Order 08-04, 2008)
