Energy Policy

Energy policy addresses the policy implications of energy supply and use from their economic, social, planning and environmental aspects. It involves the issues of energy production, distribution and consumption and may often include legislation, treaties, incentives to investment, guidelines for conservation, taxation and other techniques.

At the Energy Institute, we work closely with the Center for the New Energy Economy, is a group of energy policy experts led by Colorado’s 41st Governor, Bill Ritter Jr. Founded in 2011, the purpose of the Center for the New Energy Economy is to educate, convene, and inspire decision-makers to create policies that facilitate America’s equitable transition to a clean energy economy.
