Event Details

Join CEA at Harry's (right next to The Vine Street Pub) in Denver for drinks, presentation and discussion from 6:30 to 9pm, Monday January 27th.

We'll introduce the Utility Death Spiral, and talk about why century-old centralized monopoly utilities are failing to meet the challenge of climate change.  We'll also explore how utilities need to evolve if they're going to successfully integrate efficiency, distributed generation, and demand side resources dispatched over a much smarter grid.

And then, we'll just hang out and continue the discussion face to face, with some local live music to set the mood.  Drinks will be available for purchase.

A rough program:
6:30 - 7:00pm -- Set-up and Mingling.  Get a drink.
7:00 - 7:30pm -- Short presentation by CEA's Research Director, Zane Selvans.
7:30 - 8:00pm -- Q&A and structured discussion
8:00 - 9:00pm -- Freeform socializing and discussion.  (And maybe another drink...)

If you want to get the most out of the evening, we highly recommend Utilities for Dummies, a blog post series by our friend Dave Roberts at Grist.

You can contact us at info@cleanenergyaction.org for any questions, comments, concerns, or for more information.
Hope to see you there!
