Visiting research laboratories, advanced energy installations, private industry and federal R&D facilities is an essential component of the Energy Fellows Institute.  While many of our curriculum hours are spent in classroom discussion, we don’t miss an opportunity to tour as many of Colorado’s advanced energy facilities and installations as possible.

During prior sessions, Fellows have been invited to tour facilities including:

  • Ascent Solar – innovative, high performance, flexible thin-film solar panels
  • Byron Rogers Federal Building – energy efficiency retrofit
  • Cherokee Generating Station
  • Colorado School of Mines – fuel cell center and Aqwatec
  • Colorado State University’s Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory
  • Denver Zoo – waste to energy program
  • Fort Carson – smart grid
  • Lightning Hybrids – efficient hydraulic hybrids for work trucks and shuttle bus fleets
  • National Renewable Energy Laboratory – multiple laboratories and test facilities
  • RavenBrick – smart windows
  • Rush Truck Center
  • SolarTAC – solar test facility
  • University of Colorado at Boulder – energy generation plant
  • Vestas Blades America
