Jeff has been an active part of Colorado’s energy policy and advocacy sector for 4 decades. Over the past 8 years, Jeff has served as chairman of the CO Public Utilities Commission and executive director of Governor Hickenlooper’s Energy Office. His experience spans from advocating for and delivering services to economically disadvantaged consumers to developing the most successful customer-driven renewable energy product in North America.

Jeff’s presentation will be upon the role of government regulation in addressing the climate crises. The underlying premise of utility regulation deciphering the “public interest” will be explored, including: how regulatory practices handle increasing complexity; the evolving boundary between “competitive” and “Monopoly” electric markets; and competing pathways t a zero-carbon future.
