The most successful Solar Power Colorado in history is now in the books, and we wanted to thank all of you who were able to participate in making the conference stimulating, creative, productive, inspiring and fun! More than 500 people joined in. While making new connections and renewing old friendships, we talked, debated, ate, drank and sketched out a policy framework for the future.
We kicked things off by honoring Sen. Mark Udall for his years of leadership in renewable energy with a lifetime achievement award. Udall and his wife, climate activist Maggie Fox, checked out the latest technologies in the exhibit hall and predicted a rosy future for solar.
Our keynote speaker, Kim Jordan, CEO and Co-Founder of New Belgium Brewing talked of her employee-owned company’s B-corp. status, stressing “using business as a force for good” and described the company’s extensive renewable energy portfolio. “Leaders make choices consistent with what they stand for,” she explained.
