FORT COLLINS — The fifth annual Natural Gas Symposium will be held on the CSU campus on Oct. 27-28, hosted by The Energy Institute at Colorado State University.
Since 2011, CSU has built a reputation for hosting balanced symposia addressing all sides of the issues around natural gas in Colorado and across the nation.
This year’s two-day symposium begins Tuesday at 1 p.m. with Natural Gas 101, a comprehensive look at natural gas topics around air, water, geology and drilling/fracking.
Three Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) awardees will later give their business pitches with audience members voting for the winner.
Tuesday will conclude with a keynote at 6 p.m. by Fred Krupp, president of the Environmental Defense Fund. Krupp’s address, “Mastering Methane: Emissions Cuts Are Key to Industry’s Future,” will look at why millions of tons of uncontrolled methane emissions each year are an economic as well as an environmental problem the natural gas industry must solve.
Wednesday, Oct. 28, will be a full day of six panels and two lunch keynote speakers beginning at 8 a.m. and concluding at 5 p.m.
The symposium is free and open to anyone interested in natural gas issues, but online registration is required.
