What we need

The fuel marketplace is changing rapidly. And consumer preferences are changing right along with them.

Minnesota needs a policy framework to ensure we continue to have a fuel economy that serves the consumers of our state and contributes to a healthy economy for all Minnesotans.

We can take leadership and act, or we can let other states and the federal government define the future for us.

Listen: A Midwestern Approach to Clean Fuels Policy

Great Plains Institute President and CEO Rolf Nordstrom and Vice President of Transportation and Fuels Brendan Jordan join Red River Farm Network’s Don Wick to talk about a new clean fuels policy being considered in the Minnesota Legislature, along with the de-carbonizing efforts underway across the country.

We’re choosing to act.

The Future Fuels Act, a bill that will be brought before the Minnesota Legislature in 2022, does just that. It creates opportunity for private sector innovation. It creates opportunities to bring technology to bear on creating cleaner versions of the fuels we already use. It creates opportunities for more electric vehicle infrastructure. And it creates opportunities for economic and jobs development. 

The Future Fuels Act allows Minnesota to reduce carbon in transportation in a way that supports the way we live, whether we live in the inner core of the Twin Cities or in Greater Minnesota.

We can either act and create a clean fuels policy for us, or we will have to adapt to ones that aren’t tailored to our needs.

We’re choosing to act on Minnesota’s behalf. We ask you to join us.

“The Future Fuels Act is smart legislation that would reduce emissions from transportation fuels in Minnesota, support low-carbon biofuels and renewable electricity, and pave the way for a cleaner transportation future. By creating the first clean fuels standard in the region, the Future Fuels Act would deliver real benefits to Minnesota residents and provide a model to states around the country.”
