About Us

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.

CCIA actively and successfully advocates for Colorado’s clean technology industries at the Colorado State Legislature, and to the Administration of Governor Jared Polis. Our efforts have directly led to creation of programs that support the growth of the industries and serve to position Colorado as a clean energy leader.


Events are an important part of the lifeblood of CCIA. We typically host 3-5 events per month ranging from casual networking events to our annual Awards Celebration, to the intensive deep-dive program Energy Fellows Institute.


As a CCIA member you become part of an active, engaged and growing industry community. Through the strength of the CCIA’s member community, CCIA is able to provide the support needed to help grow Colorado’s cleantech economy membership.
