Wednesday, May 5, 2021 | 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.
Energy Resiliency Through Microgrids

Colorado communities faced with an increasing number of climate change-related natural hazards like fires, floods, and winter storms are turning towards microgrids to build their energy resiliency for power outages. This webinar will provide a high-level overview of what a micro-grid is, then dive into Colorado examples that leveraging State and federal resources to ensure uninterrupted power at emergency shelters and key public facilities across the state.

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 | 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.
Embedding Climate Equity in Your Community

This webinar will discuss how Colorado communities are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change and how local governments are responding equitably. We'll provide an overview of CDPHE's Climate Equity Framework to assist local governments in applying climate equity principles in their community.

Wednesday, July 7, 2021 | 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.
Efficiency and Sustainability in Water Treatment Plants

This webinar will offer both innovative and increasingly more commonplace methods for water treatment plants to reduce energy use and costs while increasing water use efficiency. We'll cover methane capture, alternative fuels, and more while showcasing examples from here in Colorado.


Wednesday, December 2nd: Economic Recovery Through Cost Savings: Leveraging Energy Efficiency in Buildings and Resiliency Strategies for Water Works to Save Money

As Colorado communities make hard budget decisions on their path to economic recovery, the highest impact no-cost solution is through the Colorado Energy Office (CEO) Energy Performance Contract program.

This webinar will discuss how local governments can invest in infrastructure improvements and enhance water efficiency by leveraging the projected savings from efficiency upgrades to finance the project on the front end. We will also provide information on how to use advanced metering & energy efficiency to create reliable & resilient water districts. The end goal for these projects is for local governments to enhance the effectiveness of their facility operations, mitigate water loss, and reduce their carbon footprint while maximizing the efficiency and life of existing assets.

Wednesday, February 3, 2021 | 12 P.M. - 1 P.M.
Climate Smart Land Use Planning and Development

This webinar will provide background, tools, and resources for local governments to be able to implement good land use planning and development patterns that are both reducing emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change. We'll explain principles like smart growth, integrated planning, transportation demand management, and natural climate solutions such as green infrastructure. You’ll hear from:

  • The Colorado Department of Transportation on transportation infrastructure for resiliency;
  • The Town of Winter Park on their Lift Transit Program;
  • Colorado Stormwater Center on green infrastructure solutions; and
  • The Town of Ridgway on their approach to green infrastructure

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 | 12 P.M. - 1 P.M. (CM|1 Approved #912589)
Planning and Support for Transportation Electrification

Colorado's Greenhouse Gas Roadmap lays out a pathway and requirement for electric vehicles (EV) and infrastructure. This webinar will provide an overview of state EV policies and programs, local government planning, and available grant support.

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 | 12 P.M. - 1 P.M. (CM|1 Approved #9213841)
New Buildings - Energy Efficiency and Building Codes

This webinar will provide the tools and resources to ensure that new buildings integrate energy efficiency best practices and can navigate all-important energy and resiliency-related building codes. You'll also hear from local governments that are leading the way in new building construction here in Colorado.
