Via the City of Minneapolis, here is a chart of greenhouse gas emissions from citywide activities.
Greenhouse gas emissions decreased 3.1% in 2016 compared to the 2015. Increases in emissions from natural gas consumption, solid waste, and wastewater were offset by decreases in emissions from electricity consumption and on-road transportation.
The City adopted goals in April 2018 to achieve 100% renewable electricity for municipal facilities and operations by 2022 and citywide by 2030. Emissions from electricity consumption are the largest share of the City’s output, but are expected to be eclipsed by natural gas by 2020.
