DENVER -- Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) in partnership with the Colorado Energy Coalition  will hold a free “Energy Connections” presentation on June 2.CCIA_logo_USE_4

Colorado has been known as a renewable energy leader since 2004 when the first-ever voter-approved renewable energy standard was passed requiring 10 percent of the state’s energy to come from renewable sources by 2015.

Since then, the standard has been increased to 30 percent renewables by 2020.

Panelists will discuss lessons that were learned and what the future may hold as costs continue to decrease and consumers increasingly want different energy options.

Speakers include:

  • Frank Prager, VP of policy and federal affairs, Xcel Energy
  • Chris Votoupal, CCIA governmental affairs, Tierney Paul Lawrence LLP
  • Travis Lowder, NREL energy analyst
  • David Hiller, executive director, Colorado Energy Research Collaborator
  • Jeff Lyng, Center for the New Energy Economy, serving as moderator

The event will be held from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at Faegre Baker Daniels, 1700 Lincoln, Suite 3200.
