Energy Fellows Institute takes 10 lucky senior executives, from any industry, on a deep dive of the Colorado clean energy landscape. This year marked number seven (speaking of luck) for CCIA’s capstone program, which took place in May over a whirlwind six days.

Check out the 2018 class of Energy Fellows.

The group braved thunderstorms and hail, while also enjoying several bluebird days for visits to diverse locations such as Rocky Mountain Institute, NREL, CSU Powerhouse, Cherokee Generating Station, and IKEA — where the Fellows went down to the store’s basement to see their innovative geothermal heating and cooling system.

The following photographs are a small sliver of Energy Fellows Institute. Read more about the program, which will repeat again in 2019.
