Colorado has world-class wind and solar resources, growing consumer demand for renewable energy and the political leadership to drive investments in clean energy. The stage is set to dramatically expand on Colorado’s near 4000 MW of wind and over 1000 MW of solar PV systems as it fulfills a policy vision of a 100% clean electricity portfolio. Brought to you by CO Wind for Schools Consortium and REpowering Schools, the Colorado Wind and Solar Forum will bring together the state’s political, utility, industry, and environmental leaders to address the economic and environmental drivers and challenges to a more prosperous, cleaner and secure economy.
When: October 30, 2019. 8:30 am – 4 pm, reception to follow.
Where: University of Denver, Tuscan Ballroom, School of Hospitality
Agenda: The Colorado Wind and Solar Forum will dive into leading edge electricity sector topics while acquainting participants with the current state market and policy situations. The Forum includes a morning plenary featuring Colorado state representative, Chris Hansen, who is at the forefront of the state’s quickly moving energy policy landscape. Presentations will include the national and regional market status, the Colorado market and policy situation, Colorado-specific wind and solar project case studies, utilities’ perspectives and innovative developments. The day concludes by looking forward with a Colorado Energy Futures panel, moderated by former Governor Bill Ritter, in a discussion with other state energy leaders. The Forum provides multiple networking opportunities including lunchtime roundtable discussions facilitated by topical experts and an evening reception.
The Forum’s net proceeds will support the Colorado’s Wind and Solar Schools program, a CSU-based effort that brings renewable energy into classrooms throughout the state, strengthening our cleantech workforce and building the next generation of renewable energy leaders.
