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)

This Colorado Electric Vehicle Readiness and infrastructure Plan (Plan) provides the framework for Colorado to become a first-tier market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), transportation technology, and PEV charging infrastructure. A thriving and competitive PEV marketplace is imperative for the economic, social, and environmental well-being of Colorado. As of 2012, Colorado is home to approximately 1,300 PEVs and more than 70 electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) sites, commonly referred to as charging stations as well as a wide variety of industry stakeholders invested in the PEV future., "The Electric Ride, Clean Cities Denver Metro Coalition, American Lung Association in Colorado.", Numerous subcontractors were involved with this document including Colorado Energy Office and the Colorado Department of Transportation., Includes bibliographical references., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed August 2019), This material is based upon work supported by the Department of Energy under Award Number DE-EE0005584., Print version record.
The State of Colorado is rapidly emerging as a leader in the electric vehicle (EV) market. According to the ZEV Sales Dashboard, as of August 2017 there were 11,238 EVs in Colorado. Over the first eight months of 2017, EV sales were up 73% over the same period in 2016. Battery electric vehicles (BEV) comprised 70% of total EV sales with plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) making up the remainder. With increased adoption, the State of Colorado stands to reap significant air quality benefits. Under the Colorado EV Market Implementation Study's high growth rate projection, by 2030 Colorado could have close to one million EVs on the road.7 By achieving this growth rate, Colorado could experience an annual reduction of ozone forming pollutants estimated at 800 tons of nitrogen oxide (NOx), 800 tons of volatile organic compounds (VOC), and up to 3 million tons of GHG., "January 2018.", Includes bibliographic references., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed August 2019)
