Ken Regelson spoke to the Boulder County Chapter of the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (BCRES) on Tuesday Jan 11, 2017 on bringing more renewable energy to Colorado and the role of competition.
Now we want to engage the community in a discussion of how we move forward from here, moving from our current fossil fuel dominated electric mix to a 21st century electric system that:
Save the date!
Solar Power Colorado 2017
The nations’ largest regional solar conference
Sponsored by: COSEIA
When: March 13-17, 2017
Where: The Omni Hotel and Conference Center in Broomfield, Colorado
The Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association has been leading the state’s dynamic solar industry for 27 years. Over that time we have experienced massive success, unprecedented growth and had much cause to celebrate.

Utility Scale Battery Storage:
Especially the Flow Battery
Professor Michael Marshak, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
University of Colorado Boulder
Boulder Creek Room – Main Floor
Michael Marshak, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of chemistry at
CU-Boulder. His research program spans the fields of organic and inorganic chemistry to make new chemicals and materials. Specifically, he plans to investigate organic reactions featuring new transition metal catalysts, nanoparticle and thin-film materials, and chemical transformations related to biomass and carbon dioxide.
Michael has helped to pioneer the use of organic materials called quinones for flow batteries, a promising new technology that can store massive quantities of energy on the electric grid. Flow batteries can enable greater use of renewable energy resources such as wind and solar by providing power when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing. His interest in batteries is now focused on the design of new chemistries that could enable solar-powered homes and businesses to go off-grid.
