Please join us for our next virtual AWMA lunch meeting, where we will hear Patrick Cummins, Senior Policy Advisor at the Center for New Energy Economy (CNEE) of Colorado State University, and Keith Hay, Director of Policy at the Colorado Energy Office, speak about GHG emissions trends and policy developments in Western states.
The sources of electric power in the Western US have changed dramatically in the last ten years and those changes continue even with the demise of EPA’s Clean Power Plan. Many Western states and utilities have made strong commitments to clean energy by 2030 and established long-term goals to be carbon free. In Colorado, Governor Polis is acting to address the climate crisis through a bold vision to get to 100 percent renewable energy by 2040 and meet the science-based targets for reducing greenhouse gas pollution established by the state legislature last year. This presentation will cover: 1) GHG emissions trends and policy developments in Western states, with a focus on what’s happening in the electric power sector, and 2) an overview of Colorado’s GHG Pollution Reduction Roadmap project.
The meeting will be heldonline via Microsoft Teams, from 12PM-1PM, on Tuesday, May 12th.
