Every few months the Rocky Mountain Chapter of AESP hosts an informal gathering of its local members and interested energy industry professionals that provide our colleagues an opportunity to network, socialize and participate in short discussions on topical energy issues. Chapter events are attended by a wide range of energy professionals: public officials from local government, staff from large and small utilities, energy consultants, employees from local national laboratories (e.g., NREL, NOAA, NCAR), educators, and students, as well as staff from non-profit organizations and environmental groups. With many energy professionals located in Front Range Colorado, from both the private and public sectors, these events give participants a chance to meet and discuss work in a casual setting that is both fun and beneficial for professional development.

Boulder Energy Meetup: Moving ahead in a Precarious Political Enviroment

We have a fantastic community in the Boulder/Denver area focused on making a difference in energy efficiency, renewables, and energy technologies. The new administration in DC is changing the energy outlook, and many in our community are concerned: how can we all work to keep moving forward despite some political minefields? E Source and the Rocky Mountain chapter of the Association of Energy Services Professionals would like to invite you to an event to discuss these important topics.Former Governor Bill Ritter will be our highlighted speaker, sharing ways to navigate difficult waters, reorganize thinking and get things done at the state and local level, and energize ourselves to solve problems facing Colorado and beyond.
