We are excited to announce that former governor Bill Ritter will be speaking at TEDxCSU. During his career as governor Ritter worked to establish Colorado as a national and international leader in renewable energy by building a new energy economy that is creating thousands of new jobs and creating hundreds of new companies.
Bill Ritter is currently the Director of the Center for the New Energy Economy (CNEE) at Colorado State University. The center started February 1, 2011 with Ritter as the founding Director. Ritter is also serving as a senior scholar within CSU’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability called SoGES.
According to CSU President Tony Frank, “Clean and renewable energy is a new economic frontier, and it’s important for Colorado and our country that we continue to position ourselves as leaders in this emerging economy. This policy center – under Gov. Ritter’s leadership – will help build essential partnerships around research-based clean energy solutions, workforce development and advancement of technologies that will fuel long-term, sustainable economic growth.”
