Clean Energy Partnership wins EPA’s 2016 Climate Leadership Award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named the Minneapolis Clean Energy Partnership a 2016 Climate Leadership Award winner in the Innovative Partnerships category for addressing climate change. The Innovative Partnerships certificate recognizes the City of Minneapolis, Xcel Energy and CenterPoint Energy partnership for exemplary action in addressing climate change.

This first-of-its-kind City-utility partnership has the City and utilities collaborating in new ways to help Minneapolis achieve clean energy goals in the City's 2013 Climate Action Plan and Energy Vision for 2040. The utilities are using the partnership to help customers achieve their energy conservation goals.

Key actions of the Clean Energy Partnership are outlined in the first two-year work plan within the planned 10-year partnership.

The EPA, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, and The Climate Registry honored 13 organizations, three partnerships and one individual in the fifth annual Climate Leadership Awards. Find more information about the 2016 Climate Leadership Award here.
