Clean Energy Legislative Academy

UPDATE: In light of the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person September event. While we were looking forward to gathering in Breckenridge, the health and safety of all involved is our top priority. We look forward to connecting with you through virtual events in the coming months.

Countdown to

The 2022 Clean Energy Legislative Academy

About the Clean Energy Legislative Academy

The Clean Energy Legislative Academy (CELA) brings together a bi-partisan cohort of state legislators and legislative energy staffers for two intensive four-day academies. Both events provide attendees the information and resources necessary for developing effective state-level clean energy policy. Our politically neutral forum provides an opportunity to learn about clean energy policy, discuss challenges in your state, and speak freely.

Typically held in Breckenridge, Colorado in July, our summer event brings together 25-30 state legislators from across the political spectrum and the country. Legislators learn from a team of expert policy faculty about a variety of issue areas, network and share their stories with one another, and develop strategies to make their states more competitive in the clean energy marketplace. In September, we invite the legislative staffers of our July attendees (returning legislators are also welcome to join us). At this event, attendees join our experts in ‘deep dive’ workshops exploring policy solutions to the key issue areas identified as important by legislators during the July session.
