Colorado's cleantech industry has established a place at the forefront of the global industry, but it will face challengers that have also recognized the opportunities presented by the cleantech industry. Other states and countries are investing internally to shift their economies to serve the growing market for cleantech. This plan outlines the areas in which the investment of stakeholder time, funding, and expertise can have the most significant impact on Colorado's ability to sustain and grow a leadership position in the cleantech industry that will drive the state's economic growth in the coming decades., Includes bibliographical references., "This Report was Prepared Under an Award from the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration, EDA Project Number: 05-69-04951, October 11, 2010."
Colorado's climate has warmed in recent decades, and climate models unanimously project this warming trend will continue into the future. Colorado experiences numerous climate related disasters, such as floods, droughts and wildfires, which will continue to occur in the future and pose serious hazards to public safety and the economy, regardless of the rate at which the climate warms. Key vulnerabilities are defined as "those aspects of the state's economy, resources, or populations that experience negative effects from climate variability or change, and that lack sufficient capacity to adapt to those effects.", "January 2015.", Description based on online resource; title from PDF cover; (viewed February 2015)
Second title page carries date April 2016., "The Colorado Energy Office (CEO) contracted with ANTARES Group, Inc. (ANTARES) to conduct a study to determine the size and characteristics of the market for customer-sited energy systems in Colorado. The objectives of the study were to: 1) improve Colorado's Energy Office's understanding of customer-sited energy market trends and the extent to which these systems contribute to Colorado's energy supply, 2) identify gaps in energy system data and potential solutions to address gaps, and 3) identify best practices in permitting that could enable jurisdictions to streamline their processes and standardize reporting of energy system data., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed March 2017)
