Gov. Bill Ritter on Powering Forward – Why Changing Political Winds Can’t Stop the Clean Energy Revolution
Prospects for launching into a powerful clean energy policy regime have considerably dimmed since the November elections. Nevertheless, the ‘Smart Money’ is still on renewables, argues former Colorado governor Bill Ritter, because their economic case is simply very strong. Gov. 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 2007-2011, is founding director of CSU’s Center for the New Energy Economy which works to facilitate America’s transition to a clean-energy economy. A recognized thought leader on energy policy he wrote “Powering Forward – What Everyone Should Know About America’s Energy Revolution” .
