A bill for an act
relating to energy; eliminating hydrogen road map reporting requirement; amending
Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 216B.813, subdivision 1.


Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 216B.813, subdivision 1, is amended to read:

Subdivision 1.

Road map.

The Department of Commerce shall coordinate and administer
directly or by contract the Minnesota renewable hydrogen initiative. If the department
decides to contract for its duties under this section, it must contract with a nonpartisan,
nonprofit organization within the state to develop the road map. The initiative may be run
as a public-private partnership representing business, academic, governmental, and
nongovernmental organizations. The initiative must oversee the development and
implementation of a renewable hydrogen road map, including appropriate technology
deployments, that achieve the hydrogen goal of section 216B.8109. The road map should
be compatible with the United States Department of Energy's National Hydrogen Energy
Roadmap and be based on an assessment of marketplace economics and the state's
opportunities in hydrogen, fuel cells, and related technologies, so as to capitalize on strengths.
The road map should establish a vision, goals, general timeline, strategies for working with
industry, and measurable milestones for achieving the state's renewable hydrogen goal. The
road map should describe how renewable hydrogen and fuel cells fit in Minnesota's overall
energy system, and should help foster a consistent, predictable, and prudent investment
environment. The department must report to the legislature on the progress in implementing
the road map by November 1 of each odd-numbered year.
