CEC logoThe Colorado Energy Coalition (CEC) is a working group of executives from across industry and those that support the energy industry. To accomplish its goals and objects, the CEC works on both short- and long-term projects:

  • Resource Rich Colorado is the CEC's annual report on Colorado's competitive position compared to national and global energy economies.
  • Federal Policy Brief on Energy is an annual document that provides Colorado's federal delegation with data and information on energy issues, as well as a call to action to create a coherent and stable national energy policy.
  • Energy Professionals in Colorado (EPIC) is a quarterly Chamber/CEC networking and educational series that brings people together from a variety of energy sectors to build relationships and to examine contemporary issues impacting Colorado's broad energy industry cluster. 
  • Energy Connections are quarterly meetings hosted by the CEC in partnership with the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association (CCIA). Energy Connections brings together established businesses and startups to discuss policy issues and solutions, find common ground, and  develop new partnerships.
