Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Andrew L. Spielman, Shareholder, Brownstein Hyatt Farber & Schreck, LLP, presenting a webinar titled Colorado’s Energy Future: Are We There Yet? on Tuesday, April 6, from 1:00pm – 2:00pm (MT).
Colorado is unique in that it is a leader in several different types of energy development, from renewables like wind and solar, to traditional forms like crude oil and natural gas. This has taken place in the context of rapidly changing state and federal regulatory regimes which reflect a political divide as to how to best reconcile environmental concerns with energy needs. Colorado’s approach to energy development shows how a balance can be struck between these competing interests, and serves as a model for other states around the country.
