Legislative request
Legislative Request

  • The Next Generation Energy Act established the following GHG reduction goals:

    • 15 % reduction from 2005 levels by 2015;

    • 30 % reduction by 2025; and

    • 80 % reduction by 2050.

  • The MPCA is obligated to report on statewide progress toward these GHG reduction goals.

    • Annual legislative proposal

    • Biennial Reduction Progress Report

  • The request included some specifications, such as estimating electricity imported to service Minnesota demand and separate tracking of emissions or sequestration associated with biomass

    (Minn. Stat. § 216H)




Rules
Rules

  • Principles:

    • the long record of emissions covering periods of years to decades;

    • a consistent time series of estimates;

    • best international and US practices;

    • high level of data disaggregation; and

    • timeliness.

  • Geographical boundaries, except:

    • net electricity imports

    • aviation

  • Recalculation of previous and baseline year estimates as methods change

    • Limitations in protocols and available data

  • Downstream (combustion of fossil fuels and other noncombustion emissions)

  • Direct (physically occur at a facility)

  • Separately track biogenic emissions and sequestration













Epa actions
EPA Actions

  • Mandatory GHG Reporting Rule

  • Proposed Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Title V Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule

  • Proposed Rulemaking: Light-duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards and Corporate Average Fuel Economy Standards

  • Proposed Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases under the Clean Air Act

  • Waxman/Markey and Kerry/Boxer
