21st Century Energy Transition Symposium
Event Description

Theme: “Ideas. Innovation. Impact.”

Now more than ever we need to bring great minds and organizations together to solve complex systemic energy-related issues.  There is a sense of urgency to connect dots between energy topics and other challenges including climate change, extreme weather events, environmental changes, greenhouse gas emissions, increasing chance of pandemics, and other realities.  These all interconnect and impact each other.

This year’s event is free to all attendees, and is 100% virtual! You’ll hear from renowned experts, researchers, scientists and industry leaders working to address the nation’s most pressing energy and climate challenges.

Discussion and panel topics include the United States’ return to the Paris accord, decarbonization and pathways to a zero-carbon future, empowering women in energy, environmental and energy justice, electrification of vehicles, federal and regional utility regulation, building innovations, and much more!

Since May 2020, the four Collaboratory entities (University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, National Renewable Energy Lab) have been hosting multi-disciplinary energy-related webinars over the course of 2020-2021.  Our goal is to continue serving our state, country and world by offering non-partisan, timely, thoughtful, educational, research/data based, and balanced webinars focused on specific topics.  Webinars have include discussion around energy transition of electric vehicles, utilities, traditional energy sources, renewable natural gas, policy, regulations, renewable energy, the power of collaboration, diversity/equity/inclusion in the clean energy workforce, and other focused topics.

The group's first webinar was held in May 2020 followed by 25+ others.  These webinars all lead up to the May 4-5, and 14, 2021 energy transition symposium.

Who should attend:  Energy industry (all sources of energy), environmental organizations, climate advocates, renewables, researchers, scientists, venture capitalists and philanthropic organizations, energy-related organizations, law firms, entrepreneurs, small/medium/large companies in energy and environmental sectors, federal agencies, government, NGOs, municipalities, regulators, utilities, academia, students, faculty and community.

Co-hosts:  The four entities that make up the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory which include University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, and National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
