21st Century Energy Transition Symposium April 1-2

Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory is hosting the 8th annual energy symposium, centered around “driving innovation.. 

This year’s event will include several keynotes including: “Forces Shaping the Global Energy Transition 2040;” “How the Federal Government is Working to Solve National Challenges;” and  “Bridging the Gap: Discovery, Research & World-Changing Solutions Impacting at a Global Scale.”

“CSU is the originator of the symposium since 2011; this year we are broadening our scopes to include sponsors from the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory,” said Maury Dobbie, the external engagement director of the Energy Institute at Colorado State University.

This year’s event will include speakers from CSU, Colorado School of Mines, University of Colorado Boulder, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and other organizations from all over the state. 

“It’s important that we host balanced, nonpartisan, educational and timely symposia. We’ve had people on stage discussing complex energy issues that weren’t always agreed on, but they are dedicated and focused on finding productive solutions,” said Dobbie. 

At the 2017 event, which sold out, attendees heard from experts on “energy’s grand challenges” including how innovation, research, and policy can lead to national and global impact.

The event will be held at the Grand Hyatt in downtown Denver. Topics will range from the government’s role in energy innovation to the digitization of energy. The daily schedule breakdown is on the CERC website.

The event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend, from lawyers to energy researchers. Registration is open online and tickets cost $200 for faculty and $50 for students.
