Consumer Energy Alliance and the Colorado Business Roundtable teamed up to host the Colorado Energy and Manufacturing Forum to discuss current energy issues and the importance of responsible energy development in the context of jobs, the economy, and U.S. competitiveness.
We had Senator Michael Bennet and Senator Cory Gardner discuss their views on the energy and manufacturing industry. Along with hearing from Tom Bugnitz from Manufacturer Edge, Tim Heaton from CAMA, and Jeff Popiel from GeoTech Environment Equipment & Leptron Unmanned Aircraft Systems about manufacturing. Then we heard from R. Scott Winner from Vestas, Taylor Henderson from Colorado Solar Energy Industry Association, Nadia El Mallakh from Xcel Energy, and Sam Knaizer from BP about the energy industry.
