CCIA’s Mission

We provide advocacy, collaboration, and practical resources to Colorado’s cleantech innovators.

Founded in 2008, CCIA impacts Colorado’s policies, innovators, products, and programs that drive expansion of a cleaner, more affordable, efficient, and secure energy economy. Through advocacy, public policy leadership, development, and education, CCIA works to ensure that Colorado is a global cleantech leader.

To halt the environmental crisis and Solve Climate+ by 2050, we must leverage all the cleantech ecosystems in the US. The inaugural 2021 Cleantech Innovation Hubs Survey from Saoradh Enterprise Partners (SEP) evaluates and ranks the top 40 hubs by the strength of their cleantech ecosystems. SEP characterizes the strength of each hub with curated datasets grouped by research funding and results, technology development, venture development, and other metrics.
