The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 appropriated money to the Department of Energy (DOE) to utilize the funding to encourage the implementation of energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. The Colorado Governor's Energy Office (GEO) was a state agency responsible for utilizing and distributing ARRA funds in Colorado. The main purpose of this Project was to evaluate the gross and net impact energy savings associated with three ARRA funding streams: the State Energy Programs grant (SEP), the State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program (SEEARP), and the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant., submitted to the GEO by Nexant in partnership with Group 14 and Research Into Action., Description based on online resource; title from PDF cover; viewed November 2015.

Energy touches the life of every Coloradan. It powers our homes and businesses, and fuels the transportation of people and goods. It affects the air we breathe and the water upon which we rely. Investing in energy resources doesn't just provide electricity, heat, and fuel -- it spurs new innovations in clean technologies and lets us harness the ingenuity of those developing Colorado's abundant natural resources. Colorado's diversity of energy resources, business-friendly environment, and world-class research institutions puts the state on a path toward a more secure energy future., Includes bibliographic references: page 29., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed March 2017)

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)
