The Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University provides in-depth, state-level public policy analysis related to America’s ongoing energy transition. With an overwhelming influence on the ways in which electricity is produced, delivered, and used, state governments have many options and factors to consider in formulating their energy policies. Advancements in clean technology and increasingly cost-competitive renewable energy sources afford states with new economic development opportunities, improved health outcomes, and more resilient communities. The award supports seminars for elected state officials about how their respective states can facilitate a policy environment conducive to lower carbon energy sources that benefit consumers, businesses, and the public sector.
