Due to the COVID-19 issues we were forced to reschedule the 21st Century Energy Transition Symposium originally scheduled April 2020.

Save the date for May 4-5 and 14, 2021

Due to the uncertainty of hosting large in-person events, we will be going 100% virtual in May 2021

Who should attend May 4-5 and 14, 2021 symposium:  Energy industry (all sources of energy), climate, environmental, renewables, researchers, scientists, venture capitalists and philanthropic organizations, energy-related organizations, law firms, entrepreneurs, small/medium/large companies in energy and environmental sectors, NGOs, federal agencies, government, municipalities, elected officials, regulators, policy makers, utilities, academia, students, faculty and community.

Agenda will be forthcoming

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) will be hosting multi-disciplinary energy-related webinars over the course of 2020-2021.  Our goal will be 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 will include discussion around energy transition of electric vehicles, utilities, traditional energy sources, renewable natural gas, policy, regulations, renewable energy, new fuels of the future, hydrogen, diversity/equity/inclusion in the clean energy workforce, and other focused topics.

Our first webinar was held mid-May 2020 followed by 24 other webinars.  These will 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.

Cost:  free webinars, registration required
