Environment Colorado tours National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Electric transportation, grid modernization, geothermal and more.

In June, Environment Colorado staff got a glimpse of what a clean energy future looks like on a tour of the National Renewable Energy Lab in Golden, which has been leading research efforts on renewable energy and energy efficiency since it was established in 1974.

“Our society is ready to be powered by clean, renewable energy and built in a way that incorporates our environment rather than destroys it,” wrote
Environment Colorado’s Graham Marema in her blog post on the tour. “But to get there, it will take strong policies and bold commitments to 100 percent renewable energy — the kinds of commitments we’ve already seen businesses, communities and entire states ramping up.”

Support for renewable energy is building across the country. Our national network has helped win the laws in California, New Mexico, Washington and Maine.
