The Colorado Cleantech Action Plan, released 10/18/10 at a State Capitol news conference, finds Colorado's innovation in the wind, solar, smart grid and bio-derived sectors, combined with the state’s progressive policies, will be the leading driver of industry growth over the next five years. The analysis, commissioned by the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association, was conducted over a five-month period by an independent consulting firm, Navigant Consulting, and involved more than 100 industry stakeholders.
Charles Eggert, President & CEO of OPX Biotechnologies and Vice Chair of the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association, puts the Colorado Cleantech Action Plan into perspective at the news conference:
