Minnesota Power Advances Clean-Energy Future by Increasing Targets for Renewable Energy Resources Under Its EnergyForward Plan

Minnesota Power | November 09, 2022

Minnesota Power, a utility division of ALLETE Inc. (NYSE: ALE), announced it is advancing its EnergyForward plan by significantly increasing the amount of renewable energy it provides over the next 15 years, based on an agreement reached with stakeholder groups, including clean energy organizations, labor and host communities.n a letter filed today with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission as part of the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) proceedings, Minnesota Power said it will seek up to 400 megawatts of wind energy and 300 megawatts of regional solar energy. That’s nearly double what the company proposed in its initial Integrated Resource Plan filing, which called for the company to add 200 megawatts of wind and 200 megawatts of solar as part of its EnergyForward blueprint for achieving 100% carbon-free energy by 2050. “Before and during the state’s IRP process, we have prioritized listening and taking feedback from customers, communities and organizations that will benefit from our clean energy transition for all, We are pleased that we could work with these stakeholders to reach an agreement that allows us to continue on our path to a carbon-free supply while also protecting safe and reliable energy at competitive rates.” -Minnesota Power Chief Operating Officer Josh Skelton. Over the next two weeks, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will consider the next steps in Minnesota Power’s EnergyForward plan as it holds two hearings to discuss the details of the company’s IRP. The Commission is expected to vote on the IRP on Nov. 22, including the agreement reached on increasing renewables. If approved, under the agreement Minnesota Power will advance storage projects that support investment in its renewable portfolio and continue to evaluate the transition of Boswell Energy Center (Boswell Unit 3 will cease coal operations by 2030). Other resource considerations, including electric grid strengthening proposals such as the MISO Long-Range Transmission Plan and a previously approved natural gas power plant, have been deferred until future regulatory filings. Minnesota Power’s IRP outlines the steps needed over the next decade to meet the energy needs of customers and reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2035 while: Protecting 24/7 reliability by ensuring adequate supplies of energy and investing in a more resilient grid. Creating a just transition for the employees and communities that have worked at and hosted power plants for decades, and for the customers who are the most energy-dependent and price-sensitive. Protecting the competitiveness of businesses in the region and family pocketbooks by investing in resources and technology that are economically sustainable. Continuing to invest in innovations that will achieve zero carbon emissions from Minnesota Power’s energy supply by 2050. Our planning for a sustainable transformation requires a flexible and dynamic approach. Since the filing of our IRP in February 2021, there have been many exciting developments, including the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, that support lowering the cost of renewables,” Skelton said. “Minnesota Power has been proactive and responsive with our commitment to climate, customers and our communities that is driving our national leadership to achieve a carbon-free supply of energy. Our EnergyForward plan being considered by the Commission this month accomplishes these goals in a way that reflects what is realistic today and what is possible tomorrow as we meet our goal of providing safe, reliable and affordable power to all customers. Minnesota Power provides electric service within a 26,000-square-mile area in northeastern Minnesota, supporting comfort, security and quality of life for 145,000 customers, 14 municipalities and some of the largest industrial customers in the United States.

Squadron Energy | December 12, 2022

Squadron Energy (Squadron) announced it has acquired CWP Renewables (CWP), in an agreement that takes Squadron's renewable energy operating portfolio to 2.4 gigawatts (GW) with an Australian development pipeline to 20GW. Squadron, part of the Tattarang group of companies, is 100 per cent Australian owned and operated, and dedicated to accelerating Australia's decarbonisation. Once fully operational, Squadron's portfolio will provide enough electricity to power 8.5 million homes, more than double the number of homes in New South Wales. CWP will be integrated into Squadron's existing business, which includes majority ownership of Windlab, and provide Squadron with the scale it requires on the east coast of Australia to meet the huge demand from large commercial and industrial customers for reliable green energy. said Squadron is now superbly positioned to ensure Australia can accelerate the development of renewable energy, creating thousands of direct and indirect jobs, at the scale and pace that our economy requires. "Squadron is proud to bring a very significant portion of Australia's renewable energy assets home to local ownership. It means that Squadron has the renewable energy critical mass to help Australia step beyond fossil fuels," -Chairman of Tattarang Dr Andrew Forrest AO Australian industries' ability to consign fossil fuel to history, is robustly demonstrated by the strong track record and commitment of Fortescue Metals, Fortescue Future Industries and other world- leading companies committed to decarbonising. We share a vision of Australia and the world, looking back on the dark era of fossil fuel as an aberration in humanity's history. One that could have ended with that fuel, but is now powered by cheap, pollution free, democratic inexhaustible energy. It is paramount that Australia continues to increase cost-efficient renewable green energy, to economically power homes and industry at pace and rid the Australian consumer of its forced reliance to increasingly expensive, dangerously pollutive fossil fuels. We are realising significant value by combining CWP's wind, solar and battery farm portfolio with Squadron's existing renewable power and firming assets. Their combined leadership and management teams strongly complement each other. We are committed to ensuring that Australians benefit from the rising employment opportunities, and massive investment in the renewable energy sector. The new jobs, manufacturing and training opportunities, particularly in regional areas, are so important to making sure generations of Australians benefit across the nation. Squadron Energy CEO Eva Hanly said the company has the experience, people, agility and scale to meet the huge demand for green energy from large commercial and industrial customers. When large industrial and commercial customers come to us, they are looking for efficient and firmed renewable power at scale. With this acquisition, we will develop and operate an extensive geographic portfolio of night and daytime wind, solar and storage assets that will ensure reliability of supply for our customers, said Ms Hanly. "The sooner we can get renewable energy at scale into the grid, the more quickly prices will come down for consumers. We are very focused on using our scale and smarts to ensure we are the leader, by a significant margin, in delivering the lowest produced cost of firm renewable energy to market. We are currently building the $3 billion Clarke Creek renewable energy hub in Central Queensland, which is the largest grid connected project in the country, and will be commencing construction of another 2GW worth of projects within the next 18 months. We have a team of passionate and dedicated people who are working towards a common goal of wanting to stop Australia's carbon emissions. We are looking forward to working with the incredible talent that is in CWP to do more game-changing projects. CWP is a vertically integrated renewables energy business that spans wind, solar and battery farms, and provides renewable energy to Transurban, Woolworths Group, Sydney Airport, Commonwealth Bank and Snowy Hydro. It currently operates over 1.1GW of wind assets including Sapphire Wind Farm, the largest in NSW, which has 75 turbines generating up to 270 megawatts (MW), Murra Warra I & II with a combined 435MW and Crudine Ridge, which has 37 wind turbines and generates 142MW . It has approvals in place to construct four more wind farms in NSW totalling over 750MW, along with a construction ready 414MW wind farm, 180MW solar farm, two battery farms and a firming power station capable of using hydrogen, biofuels and hydrogen gas blends. The acquisition will unlock an unparalleled development pipeline in NSW and Victoria to ensure reliability of supply across the east coast and transform the market from generator-led to customer- led. Squadron was advised by Highbury Partnership as its financial advisor and Clayton Utz as its legal advisor. About Squadron Energy: Squadron Energy is a 100% owned Australian company with a sole focus of accelerating the decarbonisation of Australia and supporting Australia to become a green energy super-power. Prior to the acquisition of CWP, Squadron Energy was the second largest renewable energy player with a significant portfolio or assets in operation and construction. Squadron Energy is constructing the Clarke Creek wind, solar and battery farm, which will power more than 600,000 Queensland homes; the Port Kembla Energy Terminal which is Australia's first LNG import terminal that will support the east coast with gas over the short term with plans to transition to green hydrogen; and is proposing the Port Kembla Power Station, which will be Australia's largest dual fuel turbine running on 50% gas and 50% green hydrogen before transitioning to 100% green hydrogen. Squadron Energy is also a foundation investor in Sun Cable and majority owner of renewable power company Windlab.
