Energy in Colorado, third edition

The third edition of  Resource Rich Colorado, released this week by the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp., calls for the state to come up with more cash incentives to lure energy companies to Colorado. The report cites the availability of $2 million in state grants to cleantech entrepreneurs in Colorado for the next 10 years as a result of expanding the Colorado Bioscience and Clean Technology Innovation Reinvestment Act. In 2010, Colorado was ranked fifth highest among the states for entrepreneurial activity by the Ewing Marion Kaufman Foundation. Resource Rich Colorado also credits “proximity to NREL,” the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, for providing “partnership and subcontractor opportunities for companies on research and development projects, as well as access to NREL research facilities.”  NREL facilities near Golden make up “the only U.S. Department of Energy laboratory dedicated to the  research, development, commercialization and deployment of renewable and energy efficiency technologies,” according to the report.
