2024 Colorado Geothermal Workforce/Labor Workshop

April 30, 2024
Workshop Overview

Join Geothermal Rising (GR), the Colorado Energy Office (CEO), and the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) to foster networking across the heating and cooling segment of the geothermal industry. This workshop will provide generalized feedback on the status of the industry in Colorado -- challenges, barriers, opportunities, resources. We are also excited to have Governor Jared Polis provide welcome remarks to attendees.

The workshop will explore: 

  • What does the industry need to be more successful?
  • What collaboration opportunities are there?
  • What's working / not working with state incentives?

Part of this workshop will inform the first annual CEO Geothermal Sector Survey themes, questions, and process. There will also be a tour of the Denver Pipefitters Local #208 facility and apprenticeship programs.

As a workshop attendee you will gain valuable intel on the status of the industry and its trends, help the CEO firm up geothermal stakeholders for ongoing communications, better understand the CEO and industry opportunities to support engagement, facilitate and promote the workforce transition into the geothermal industry, and help the CEO improve the Geothermal Sector Survey for the State of Colorado.

This is a hybrid event, virtual participation and feedback is welcome.
