Former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter Continues To Influence Clean Energy

Sep 28, 2018

Bill Ritter was the 41st Governor of Colorado, serving in office from 2007 until 2011. One of the areas that he emphasized in office was progressive energy policy. Since leaving office, he has continued to work in energy. The first way in which he has done so has been through the Center for the New Energy Economy, which he started in 2011 at Colorado State University. The mission of the organization is to advise state governments on energy transition, particularly away from coal.

Second, Ritter joined Blackhorn Ventures as a strategy partner. His three areas of emphasis there are on the built environment, the energy sector, and the transportation sector.

In this interview, Ritter discusses his time in office, his work since leaving office, and the path ahead, as he sees it.
