Alice Jackson will talk about Xcel’s Colorado Energy Plan (CEP). Xcel Energy is an investor owned utility that provides half of the electric power used in Colorado. Their CEP is a roadmap to reduce carbon emissions while maintaining competitive rates. The plan contains a portfolio of existing and new wind, solar and storage projects while retiring coal-fired generation. In 2017, Xcel produced 28% of its power for Colorado from renewables. Their goal is to reduce carbon emissions 80% from 2005 levels by 2030. Their vision is to be 100% carbon free by 2050.

The Southeast chapter of the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (SECRES) presents “High Performance Buildings”.
As high efficiency and renewables bring buildings ever closer to zero-energy, we need to assure that they are built with consideration for health, safety, conservation and durability.
In this presentation, Enrico Bonilauri, of the Denver based international firm Emu Systems, will present cutting edge research led by the Passive building movement and its practical and cost-effective implementation in the local building market.
