The Colorado Energy Coalition (CEC), formed in 2006, is a diverse organization dedicated to strengthening the business climate in Colorado supporting all sectors within the energy industry — fossil fuels, renewable resources, energy efficiency, and conservation. Members of the CEC represent the industry, finance, law, government, education, economic development, and the public workforce system. The CEC works to brand Colorado as the Balanced Energy Capital of the West.
Membership in the CEC is a benefit to investors in the Metro Denver EDC. Proposed CEC members must also be in positions and have expertise that supports CEC goals and objectives.
CEC co-chairs are Lee Boughey, senior manager, communications and public affairs of Tri-State Generation and Transmission, and John Armstrong, president of Enserca Engineering.
