“For me, the New Energy Economy has always been about our future, our kids’ future, our grandkids’ future. I think in order to survive in this created space we inhabit, we need to produce and consume energy differently. If we do not then our legacy for our children will be a Colorado inferior to the Colorado that we live in.”

– Colorado’s 41st Governor, Bill Ritter, Jr., Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy, Colorado State University
