Letter from CCIA
Pictured at left: the 2016 class of the Energy Fellows Institute visits the Cherokee Generating Station in Denver.

Today is the deadline to apply for one of CCIA's capstone events of the year, the Energy Fellows Institute (EFI). Held every year in the spring since 2012, EFI has taken 42 senior executives through a deep dive of the clean energy ecosystem on the front range, and we're on track to accept another 8-10 Fellows in 2018.

The 2018 class of Fellows will get to drive a test model of a futuristic fuel cell vehicle, visit the robot that won the Circular Economy Award at Davos, tour the largest net zero energy commercial office building in the States (still under construction), and hear from industry experts on topics from reinventing global energy systems to disruptive agriculture.

There is still time to be considered for one of the final spots in the 2018 Fellows class, if you apply by 5pm today  . Don't delay!
