Due to the coronavirus pandemic challenging our country and world, we were forced to reschedule the in-person 21st Century Energy Transition Symposium until May 4-5, 2021. The 9th annual event will be 100% virtual due to the uncertainty of hosting large gatherings by May 2021.
In the meantime the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory will be steadfast, resilient and focused during this unprecedented time. 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.
2020-2021 energy-related free webinars
Since May 2020, the four Collaboratory entities (University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, National Renewable Energy Lab) have hosted multi-disciplinary energy-related free webinars over the course of the year. More free webinars are planned for 2021. Our goal will be 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 will include discussion around the energy transition in terms of electric vehicles, utilities, traditional energy sources, renewable natural gas, policy, regulations, renewable energy, and other focused topics.
The webinars will all lead up to the May 4-5, 2021 energy transition symposium. An excellent line-up of panelists and moderators will be posted as they come on line. We will post the webinar schedule in the coming weeks.
