Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper will outline his vision for Colorado’s energy future at this year’s Schultz Lecture Thursday at the University of Colorado Law School.
His talk, “Energy: Threats and Opportunities – An Entrepreneur’s Perspective,” which is free and open to the public, will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at CU-Boulder’s Wolf Law Building and is hosted by CU-Boulder’s Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment. Spaces are limited and registration is required at www.colorado.edu/law/gwc/hickenlooper.
“Energy innovation stands as one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century, and a key initiative of the Getches-Wilkinson Center,” said Phil Weiser, dean of Colorado Law. “The leadership of Colorado -- and Gov. Hickenlooper -- in developing thoughtful energy policies is a model for the nation.”
The lecture is made possible by the Schultz Lectureship Fund, created in 2007 through the generosity of John H. (’53) and Cynthia H. Schultz to support a lecture each year by scholars in the fields of oil and gas, energy or natural resources law. Last year’s lecture was delivered by Jim Burke, president of NGL Energy Partners and CEO of High Sierra, who spoke on the increasing importance of water and wastewater handling and disposal for unconventional oil and gas operations.
The Getches-Wilkinson Center’s mission is to serve the people of the American West, the nation and the world through creative interdisciplinary research; bold, inclusive teaching; and innovative problem-solving in order to further true sustainability for the nation’s lands, waters and environment.
