Last week, Colorado Business Roundtable (COBRT) welcomed David Mohler, Assistant Deputy Secretary of Energy from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy Carbon Management, to our city and to our office.
On June 23, 2016 representatives from several of the region's energy companies and other related interest groups joined COBRT at the CAP Logistics headquarters in Denver. Mohler heard from a variety of companies including, but not limited to, BP, Cloud Peak Energy, Standard Alcohol and Westmoreland Coal Company. Organizations included Colorado Cleantech Industries Association, Colorado Farm Bureau, Colorado Mining Association, Colorado Oil and Gas Association, Colorado Petroleum Association and University of Wyoming.
COBRT founder Gayle Dendinger and its president Jeff Wasden were in attendance as well as CAP Logistics' Vice President of Sales and Marketing John Boner. Wasden explained how the reach of the COBRT network allows its members to have this type of interaction with high-level personnel when they make visitations from Washington, D.C. "Colorado Business Roundtable ensures that the voices of our sponsors and members are heard loud and clear," he said.
Mohler also toured sites around the Denver metro area which relate to the energy industry in its varied iterations. COBRT joined him at Colorado School of Mines and National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
"Energy and Environment" is identified as one of COBRT's nine Key Issues as well as Business Roundtable's. Stay tuned for future opportunities to have your voice heard by top industry leaders.
