The governments, utilities, and institutions in our interconnected 3-county region have various clean energy and climate-related targets. Colorado governor-elect Jared Polis has the goal of transitioning Colorado to 100 percent renewable energy by 2040, the most ambitious renewable 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 to reach targets, and in ways that will maximize economic diversification benefits in our region and regional resilience. Our region is also part of NREL’s national Solar Energy Innovation Network.
The purpose of the December 13 meeting is to build on conversations to date, create frameworks for ongoing collaboration to accelerate clean energy progress in our 3-county region, and identify key issues to address in 2019 to make steady progress on reaching adopted clean energy targets with particular emphasis on regional economic diversification and resilience. The meeting will also identify areas that NREL’s Solar Energy Innovation Network could assist our region.
The roundtable is free and open to the public.
