The governments, utilities, and institutions in Garfield, Eagle and Pitkin counties have various clean energy and climate-related targets. Colorado’s governor-elect, Jared Polis, has set the goal of transitioning Colorado to 100 percent renewable energy by 2040, the most ambitious renewable energy goal in the country.
Over the last two years representatives from governments, organizations and utilities in our region have convened to discuss how to collaborate in order to reach targets, and in ways that will maximize economic diversification benefits in our region and regional resilience. And earlier this year, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) named our region to participate in its national Solar Energy Innovation Network.
The purpose of the Dec. 13 meeting is to build on success to date, create a framework for ongoing collaboration to accelerate clean energy progress in our interconnected region, and to identify key issues to address in 2019 to make progress toward our adopted clean energy targets. The meeting will identify ways that NREL’s Solar Energy Innovation Network can assist in our efforts.
Presenters and participants include:
Amory Lovins, Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute

Dr. Carrie Hauser President, Colorado Mountain College
