The Minnesota Departments of Commerce (Commerce) and Labor and Industry (DLI) are convening an informal short-term workgroup to examine policy ideas that enable cities to voluntarily promote or otherwise ensure greater energy performance measures for commercial and multifamily residential buildings.

The workgroup will meet in October 2019 through January 2020 to develop a common set of information, discuss various perspectives and identify areas of potential compromise. Workgroup discussion will inform the agencies’ perspectives about potential policy options that enable cities to make progress on building efficiency and carbon use.

Members of the public may participate by attending workgroup meetings in person and through submission of written comments to
