CERI has participated in a variety of energy-related events in many parts of Colorado to highlight the state’s role in the emerging new energy economy. The objective is to deliver a message of the importance to all of Colorado of the changes underway in the energy industry, and of the opportunity Colorado has to influence the development of that new economy.


The Energy and Minerals Field Institute (EMFI)
The EMFI conducted a very successful Government Field Program in August 2006 that included visits to 11 different energy sites including solar and wind energy, underground coal, petroleum, oil shale, hydroelectric, coalbed methane, surface coal, and coal-fired generation. The program included three formal issue discussions on community development, water policy, and environmental impacts on national parks. Individuals from congressional and federal executive offices, federal departments, and State agencies participated.


International Oil Shale Symposium
The Colorado School of Mines and CERI will host the 27th Oil Shale Symposium at the Green Center on the Colorado School of Mines Campus between October 15-19, 2007. The Symposium will review development of oil shale resources worldwide, including research & development, impact analysis, regulatory framework, and project & program status.
