Gov. Bill Ritter: Powering Forward on Clean Energy Policy (Tuesday)

Ritter will also talk about his recent book and share insights based on his extensive work with legislators, planners, policymakers, and the power industry.

Bill Ritter, Colorado’s Governor from[masked], is founding director of CSU’s Center for the New Energy Economy which works to facilitate America’s transition to a clean-energy economy.

    Always enjoy Gov Ritter's optimism, passion and enthusiasm. It certainly appears to be in the States' hands now, so advocating local involvement is excellent.

    Highest attendance so far with 180 people, many of whom stayed for the reception. Ritter was clear and concise, and was generous with his time, answering individual questions after the event. Thanks to OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) for cosponsoring which brought in many new people.
    Hope to see you next time and at this week's Colorado Environmental Film Festival which I'll also post here.

    I highly recommend his book powering forward. His talk and book definitely show he has a good handle on the big picture. One can get the NAS publication he alluded to called "Power to change" for FREE at
