The Minnesota Departments of Commerce (Commerce) and Labor and Industry (DLI) convened 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 met in October 2019 through January 2020 to develop a common set of information, discuss various perspectives and identify areas of potential compromise. Workgroup discussion informed the agencies’ perspectives about potential policy options that enable cities to make progress on building efficiency and carbon use.
Members of the workgroup included a varied group of stakeholders and were designated by the commissioners of Commerce and DLI.
