RESCHEDULED! 21st Century Energy Transition Symposium 2020 has been scheduled for May 4-5, 2021
Previously Scheduled Date: April 28-29, 2020
Due to the pandemic and uncertainty in hosting large in-person events, the May 4-5, 2021 symposium will be 100% virtual
Who should attend in 2021: Energy industry (all sources of energy), environmental organizations, climate, renewables, researchers, scientists, venture capitalists and philanthropic organizations, energy-related organizations, law firms, entrepreneurs, small/medium/large companies in energy and environmental sectors, federal agencies, government, NGOs, municipalities, regulators, utilities, academia, students, faculty and community.
Co-hosts: The four entities that make up the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory which include University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, and National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
In the meantime the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory will be steadfast, resilient and focused during this unprecedented time. Now more than ever we need to bring great minds and organizations together to solve complex systemic energy-related issues. There is a sense of urgency to connect dots between energy topics and other challenges including climate change, extreme weather events, environmental changes, greenhouse gas emissions, increasing chance of pandemics, and other realities. These all interconnect and impact each other.
2020-2021 energy-related webinars
The four Collaboratory entities (University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, National Renewable Energy Lab) have been hosting multi-disciplinary energy-related webinars over the course of 2020-2021. Our goal is to continue serving our state, country and world by offering non-partisan, timely, thoughtful, educational, research/data based, and balanced webinars focused on specific topics. Webinars have include discussion around energy transition of electric vehicles, utilities, traditional energy sources, renewable natural gas, policy, regulations, renewable energy, the power of collaboration, diversity/equity/inclusion in the clean energy workforce, and other focused topics.
Our first webinar was held in May 2020 followed by 25+ others. These webinars all lead up to the May 4-5, 2021 energy transition symposium. An excellent line-up of panelists and moderators will be posted as they come on line. Go to https://cercsymposium.org/

Here’s what happened April 2019 at the 8th annual energy transition symposium
Since 2011 the past annual symposia offered a wide range of science, industry leadership, best practices, common sense regulations and policy implications across a broad spectrum of energy and sustainability issues. The 21st Century Energy Transition Symposium 2019 was the 8th annual event co-hosted by the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory (Collaboratory) — a unique and successful energy research partnership between University of Colorado, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University and National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Between 2011 and 2017, the annual energy symposia was hosted by Colorado State University. Building a national reputation of hosting an event focused on finding solutions, the symposia made sure speakers from different backgrounds and opinions had a voice at each session. Always held in the fall, the 8th annual symposium was held in the spring 2019.
With a reputation for independent research excellence, the four Collaboratory partners are uniquely positioned to help the public understand energy-related transitions occurring in Colorado, the West, the United States and internationally. The partners provided balanced, credible, and multi-disciplinary solutions to the complex problems facing the world.
The Collaboratory partners can directly address all the issues – energy sources, environmental, water, land use, oil and gas production, air, regulatory, policy and cultural – that are demanding public attention and discussion.
