Eden Prairie's Energy Action Plan prioritizes three focus areas to promote electricity and natural gas conservation — residential energy, large commercial and industrial buildings, and public, nonprofit and service organizations.
The goals and strategies outlined for each of these focus areas aim to reduce communitywide greenhouse gas emissions, improve quality of life for Eden Prairie residents and increase the economic vitality of Eden Prairie businesses. The plan is part of the overall Sustainable Eden Prairie initiative and addresses both short- and long-term energy goals.
Communitywide Energy Goal
To reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions below the 2015 baseline 30% by 2025 and 80% by 2050.

Eden Prairie participated in Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy which is designed to support communities as they develop and implement strategic energy plans unique to their energy needs. Over a five-month period, Eden Prairie's energy action team, consisting of residents and community leaders from various businesses and organizations, and City government, identified focus areas, developed goals and strategies, and advised on implementation of the plan.
