Founded in 2008, CCIA impacts Colorado’s policies, people, products, and programs that drive expansion of a cleaner, cheaper, more efficient, and secure energy economy. Through advocacy, public policy leadership, development, and education, CCIA works to ensure that Colorado is a global cleantech leader.
Cleantech In Colorado
Clean Edge has consistently ranked Colorado in the top 10 of their Cleantech Index, an indication of leadership in the cleantech industry. Here we divide the industry into 5 categories: incentives, policy, community, research capabilities, and partnerships and list the key players in each.
CCIA acts as an extra set of eyes and ears in the Colorado Capitol, helping companies of all sizes monitor and lobby for legislative action that benefits our sector, and in turn the people of Colorado. CCIA’s legislative policy support is making a big difference for clean technology here in Colorado.Bonnie Trowbridge
